Nearly everything can be recycled. But there are instances where traditional recycling alternatives are very limited. This is especially true with materials containing a mixture of components that aren’t easily separated.
As a last alternative, there are options where those materials can be turned to energy through incineration.
Such is the case at our San Luis Potosi Complex in Mexico. We make use of our landfill-free expertise toward solutions to address some of the non-recyclable waste produced at the facility.
The result: teaming up with CEMEX, a global building materials company, who now uses the byproducts in their cement-making process. Essentially, the waste material feeds the ovens that provide the energy to create cement. CEMEX’s power generator plant also uses it to create energy to power part of the plant’s operations, cutting consumption of non-renewable resources. Continue reading
