World Cement: One person’s trash is another person’s treasure

3rd November, 2022

Ian Jones, our CEO, has authored an article for World Cements in which he discusses the changing political landscape for alternative fuels, specifically those produced from waste.

Currently, cement manufacturers are paid a gate fee by waste companies for using refuse-derived fuel (RDF) and loose solid recovered fuel (SRF), which would otherwise end up in landfill.

This also means waste companies avoid paying expensive landfill taxes and can be seen as doing their part for the environment.

But, as Ian explains, this is set to change, with industries finding new ways to deal with and use waste more efficiently.

With cement manufacturers still heavily reliant on fossil fuels to keep their kilns burning, alternative fuels, such as our solid recovered fuel (SRF) pellets, are the answer.
