Holcim allowed to burn more waste
First published on www.AggBusiness.com
Holcim has been allowed to completely replace conventional fuels with waste when making cement at its production plant in Sehnde-Höver near Hanover, in Germany.
The permission granted by the local inspectorate replaces an agreement in 2006 to allow the plant to use 70% substitute fuels.
Holcim mainly burns plastic waste at its Sehnde-Höver plant, which produces about 1million tonnes of cement per year.
The company has also received approval for installing a huge mill at the plant for grinding slag sand. The project includes a silo building with a capacity of 20,000tonnes.
