Alternative Fuel

History, Prospects & Positioning
Currently, about 30 KT of waste per year is co-processed as a substitute for fossil fuels.
This activity, still in the embryonic stage of its development, has been showing sustainable growth in a context where the optimization of the local energy matrix is increasingly pressing.  An increase of the activity is expected, which registered in 2014 a thermal fuel substitution rate of 3% and around 5% in 2015. In 2016 we should reach around 16%, benefiting from recent investments in this area, including the equipping of Kilns 1 and 3 with co-processing capacity.
