Our Geocycle activity is providing services to recover waste from other industries or municipalities by integrating them in our production processes. For instance, a cement kiln is a very efficient tool to recover mineral based or energy containing waste materials.
Every year hundreds of thousand tons of sewage sludge are co-processed in our cement kilns. We want to play our role in the sustainable management of phosphorus. We actively investigate technologies to recover phosphorus in synergy with our operations. We believe in cooperation, promoting knowledge exchange and looking for partnerships.
