LafargeHolcim treated 10-mn tonnes of waste

LafargeHolcim’s global waste management business, Geocycle, treated 10 million tonnes of waste in 2017, an increase of 13 percent versus 2016. This is almost twice the total yearly household waste generation of Switzerland or the equivalent of 2 million garbage collection trucks. The company has co-processed all types of waste including: solid shredded waste from industrial and municipal origin, spent solvents, used tires, waste oils, contaminated soils, industrial and sewage sludges, as well as demolition waste. Jan Jenisch, Group CEO said,“Sustainable building and living are key to the future and we are committed to playing an important role as the demand for sustainable construction solutions and sustainable buildings and infrastructure continues to grow. We have plans to continue investing in all parts of the world in order to bring the most advanced technology and solutions to our partners and play a role in solving the global waste problem.”
