To increase the substitution rate of fossil fuels with alternative fuels, we are constantly investing in state-of-the-art technologies. As part of our net-zero roadmap, we aim to increase our thermal substitution rate to 50% by 2030 and reach over 70% by 2050.
By substituting traditional fuels with alternative fuels in our cement plants, we solve several problems at once: we reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, we lower the carbon intensity of our cement, and we offer a highly safe and ecological solution to waste at the end of its life, applying the most stringent international standards of waste management.
What is the thermal substitution rate (TSR)?
Proportion of cement kiln thermal energy provided by alternative fuels including biomass and other sources of non-recyclable waste
