Protecting oceans from marine litter
Each year, 8 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the world’s oceans. At this rate, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by 2050.
One of the key ways Holcim reduces its marine litter is through its Geocycle waste management subsidiary. In India and France, Geocycle is piloting a non-invasive technology that removes plastic waste from rivers, thus preventing it from reaching the ocean. Geocycle recently installed its Bubble Barrier technology in the Yamuna River in Agra, India.
