Fuel from your waste

World Cement,

The use of alternative fuels to replace traditional fossil fuels is a key pillar of Cemex's carbon strategy as it contributes to significantly reduce overall CO2 emissions.

The substitution of fossil fuels with alternative fuels result in numerous benefits such as:

  1. Reduced GHG emissions
  2. Saves fossil fuel for the future
  3. Reduced need for landfill
  4. Recovers energy from waste
  5. Reduced energy costs

During 2011, Cemex achieved a 25% alternative fuel substitution rate, a marked improvement from a baseline of 5% in 2005. Cemex has set a target to reach a 35% alternative fuel substitution rate by 2015, and the company is on track to make it happen.
