CEMEX participates in European industrial efficiency project
September 14, 2017
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) (NYSE: CX) announced today that it is participating in the European Union supported EPOS project. Designed to enable cross-sector industrial symbiosis, the project highlights case studies exemplifying ways for companies to use wastes from other industries to deliver greater efficiency, save raw materials, and contribute to more sustainable processes.
Within the framework of the EPOS project, CEMEX’s South Ferriby cement plant (located in the United Kingdom) has worked with other companies, including the INEOS chemical company based in the UK, to determine how waste from INEOS’s production could be used as part of the cement manufacturing process.
“It is a privilege for CEMEX’s cement plant in South Ferriby to participate in this project, collaborating with other companies and partners across Europe. This helps to ensure that we operate our cement plant as efficiently as possible, while learning lessons that we can apply to our other facilities,” said Kevin Groombridge, South Ferriby Cement Plant Environment Manager.
“This project has enabled CEMEX to envision its process in new and different ways. Reviewing every stage of our manufacturing process internally and externally with other companies has enabled us to identify both cement resources and production efficiencies. I’m confident that other companies would benefit from adopting this cross-sector approach of industrial symbiosis,” said Sebastian Arias, CEMEX EPOS Project Coordinator.
In addition to South Ferriby, CEMEX Poland, from the production side, and the CEMEX Research Group AG in Switzerland, from the research and development side, represent CEMEX in the EPOS project.
