About our recycling center in Austria
Holcim continuously develops new business models that address waste challenges. One such case is Geocycle Austria, which is developing innovative solutions for construction demolition materials (CDM). The Geocycle Recycling Center in Retznei, Austria processes 130,000 tons of CDM every year. Geocycle, in cooperation with the biggest aggregate and concrete partner in Austria, processes these materials and renders them reusable.
Our cement plant in Retznei is setting new benchmarks in recycling and recovery, and the majority of the energy used by the plant is recovered from local pretreated waste. In addition, the waste heat from the kiln is reused by the local community for the heating of buildings. With the Geocycle Recycling Center, the team is also setting a standard in recycling CDM.
