INSEE Cement’s fully-owned subsidiary, INSEE Ecocycle Lanka has launched an eco-friendly service offering to the industries of Biyagama. The company’s independent waste management subsidiary INSEE Ecocycle introduced its Ecocycle Environment Services to industries in and around the Biyagama Export Processing Zone.
Athula Jayasinghe, Director of the Biyagama Export Processing Zone was the occasion’s chief guest. Several other BOI officials and corporate customers of the company also participated in the event. The company has stated that the event further strengthened INSEE Ecocycle’s endeavour to expand its services beyond kiln coprocessing. INSEE Ecocycle has established a range of much needed industrial waste management services, including laboratory services, e-waste management, emergency response, training and consultancy, and specialised logistics sought after by corporate customers for sustainability endeavours.
The new service is in keeping with the Siam City Group’s trend in Asia to diversify waste management, with the long-term vision of minimising the impact of waste that has become a serious threat for the planet. In 2018, INSEE Ecocycle invested LKR500 million, which is the country’s highest ever investment, in waste management expansion. The investment covers environmental services and other infrastructures.
Over the past 16 years, INSEE Cement’s total investment in Ecocycle’s waste management initiatives has exceeded LKR1.7 billion. INSEE Ecocycle has studied the Sri Lankan waste market and customer requirements in detail through many feasibility studies, being willing to bring regional know-how to develop sustainable environmental solutions in Sri Lanka.
“We have taken a progressive step forward by making INSEE Ecocycle an independent legal entity with the single-minded mission of providing a lasting solution to the country’s problem of waste that threatens the health of the nation,” said Sanjeewa Chulakumara, Director of INSEE Ecocycle Lanka. “The launch of our environmental services is another important milestone in our journey to building a better, cleaner environment in Sri Lanka.”
“As a leader who provides the construction industry with a range of cement products that meets the nation’s emerging needs, INSEE Cement is proud of the many milestones we have achieved so far,” said Nandana Ekanayake, CEO of INSEE Cement. “As a company, we are committed to building a better nation for the future and this is one of the important steps we have taken to safeguard the environment and pave the way for a cleaner, safer lifestyle for all our people.”
