We believe that cement production must use clean technologies that constantly improve natural resources allocation and reduce emissions and waste. We invest in R&D to develop new technologies and improve existing technologies to promote eco-efficiency in our processes and products.
Our goals are in line with the Global Environmental Policy and Green Rules and our commitments fall under the Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) of the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA).
We have invested in the production of energy from renewable sources, and more than 80% of our electricity consumption comes from wind energy.
Our Contribution to the Circular Economy
Circular economy aims at sustainable management of resources where nothing is wasted compared to the current "make, use and discard" model. The priority is the application of the waste management hierarchy, so that the energy content of waste is recovered, where it cannot be avoided, reused or recycled, instead of being deposited in a landfill. From the point of view of the circular economy, these non-recyclable products are permanently reused.
We have signed an agreement, as a member of the APC (Association of Cement Producers), with the Ministry of the Environment for the development and promotion of the recovery and disposal of waste in the cement kiln.
Since 2018, ASMENT TEMARA has invested in new installations to valorize products that cannot be reused or recycled. This is a process where these products are eliminated by transforming them into energy while reducing the natural resources consumption and respecting the environment.
