Energy Consumption and Resource Management
We reduce our consumption of non-renewable resources by using processed industrial, municipal and agricultural waste as alternatives fuels in cement plants and re-using construction and demolition waste to develop our recycled aggregates and concrete offer.
Substituting fossil fuels with industrial or municipal waste and biomass to power our cement plants allows us to:
- reduce our environmental impact,
- generate local economic activity,
- and contribute to plant competitiveness at a time of fast-rising energy costs.
In order to meet our ambitious objectives in terms of fossil fuel substitution, we are increasing our direct sourcing of alternative fuel, in particular municipal and agricultural waste, where we can develop shared value projects that benefit our operations, the environment and the wider community.
