MPA argues that cement waste is a valuable resource

Co-authored by Professor Ian Boyd, the Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), as well as other leading industry and academic experts, the report explores how we can treat waste as a valuable resource and use new technology and approaches to get the most from it in the UK.

“UK cement manufacturers recycle 1.5 million tpy of waste and by-products . Government scientists have finally acknowledged the important recycling that the cement industry provides for UK society,” said Dr Richard Leese, MPA’s Director of Industrial Policy, Energy and Climate Change.

“This report is important recognition of the valuable recycling and energy recovery that the UK cement industry provides through a unique process called co-processing. Co-processing takes materials low down in the value chain, combines them with natural minerals to create a cement product that is essential for society. It does this without creating new wastes for society to deal with.”
