Geocycle (Switzerland) provides an environmentally sound solution to its customers for the treatment of their waste. Through co-processing emissions in the cement production process can be reduced and material cycles along the entire value chain can be closed. Waste from industry is recycled and used as thermal energy in the form of alternative fuels. As a result, fossil fuels such as coal can be replaced and CO2 emissions significantly reduced. The cement industry can also efficiently recycle mineral waste – for instance, contaminated soil from construction sites – and thus replace the natural raw materials limestone and marl. At the same time, this saves the already scarce landfill space in Switzerland.
