Powering Our World through Waste
We consider waste management to be the powerhouse behind the world’s vision of a net-zero, fully sustainable future. Technology and innovations that maximize the benefits of recycled building materials and recycled concrete help Holcim play a major in reducing waste, preserving our ecosystems and offering the industry more sustainable building products. However, our work also follows a path that embraces the visions of our subsidiaries, Geocycle and Systech Environmental, whose mission focuses on unlocking the tremendous potential that exists in transforming waste into energy as well as recycled materials. We do this by finding new uses for materials that would otherwise be discarded, then coprocessing them as alternatives to fossil fuels. With these alternative fuels, we empower our company to create more sustainable building products.
