HOLCIM PHILIPPINES, Inc. has committed P121.5 million to develop alternate fuel manufacturing facilities at its cement plant in Norzagaray, Bulacan, by 2022.

In its regulatory filing on Thursday, the company claimed that the sum was intended to increase the productivity of its shredding operations by turning eligible waste materials into alternative fuels, establishing new equipment and improving storage and feeding facilities in its cement factory.

Holcim Philippines said the changes would enable its waste management unit to assist the Bulacan plant in the use of more post-consumer and municipal solid waste as renewable fuels other than gas.

According to the business, eligible waste, such as non-recyclable plastics and biomass, has been used as alternative fuels in cement production since 2003, which is transformed through co-processing technology.

“In co-processing, eligible waste materials are pre-processed as substitute fuel and fed into high-temperature stoves along with other conventional cement-producing fuels,” the firm said.

“This method transforms waste into alternative fuel and converts it into cement energy,” he said.

Holcim Philippines President and CEO John Stull said that its waste management unit has helped communities and business associates handle their waste while allowing the organization to manufacture construction products in a more cost-effective and environmentally sustainable way.

“This expenditure means that we will continue to be a credible collaborator for sustainable development in the region, while still fulfilling our goals of making our activities more productive and respectful of nature,” Mr. Stull said.

In 2020, Holcim announced that it co-processed about 130,000 tons of eligible waste from local governments, industry partners and agricultural processors at its Luzon and Mindanao plants.
