Global building materials supplier Cemex has inaugurated its new construction, demolition, and excavation waste recycling facility, located in Tel Aviv, Israel. To mark the commencement of operations at the facility, the site was visited by a group of senior representatives from the Cemex EMEA management team.
This site will play an important role in the growth of Cemex’s circularity efforts, under the banner of its new Regenera business. It will eventually receive up 500 000 t of building waste per year. This material will then be processed and used, where appropriate, in recycled building materials.
The main suppliers of material for this location are anticipated to be companies engaged in demolition of existing buildings and companies that transport construction waste, while customers for recycled materials in Israel include concrete companies, flooring contractors and infrastructure companies. The facility was acquired earlier this year as part of Cemex’s purchase of a 51% stake in Israel-based SHTANG Recycle LTD.
Sergio Menéndez commented: “This new facility in Tel Aviv marks a significant milestone in Cemex's commitment to circularity, which is of such importance to our global ambition of reaching net zero by 2050. We are proud to play a vital role in the growth of our Regenera business, turning building waste into recycled materials for a more sustainable future. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting our Israeli operation and opening the plant and was inspired by the passion of my local colleagues for innovation and collaboration in pursuit of a better future.”
Regenera provides sustainable solutions for three major waste streams: municipal and industrial waste, construction, demolition, and excavation waste (CDEW), and industrial byproducts. Regenera is present in all of Cemex’s regions of operation: Mexico; the US; Europe, the Middle East and Asia; and South-Central America and the Caribbean. It forms an important aspect of Cemex’s strategy to achieve sustainable excellence through climate action, circularity, and natural resource management with the primary objective of becoming a net-zero CO2 company by 2050.
