Toward net zero emissions in Austria
Did you know that Holcim is a world leader in waste solutions? We invest heavily in equipping our plants to accelerate the use of waste-derived fuels globally from today’s 20 to 37 by 2030. Heating our kilns with pretreated waste and other alternative fuels is key in reducing our carbon footprint.
The plant is equipped to treat waste streams of different quality which are then fed into the system, ensuring consistent temperatures to comply with quality requirements. The added benefit of co-processing is that the entire waste input is recycled or recovered without producing any additional residue.
Retznei is our star pupil, but to achieve our carbon footprint reduction we need to go further. Luckily, co-processing is a scalable solution that can be rolled out across the globe through Geocycle, our co-processing network that is already present in 50 countries worldwide.
*The TSR refers to the percentage of energy from waste-derived fuels instead of traditional fuels like coal or petcoke.
