Cement Production

Solid Recovered Fuel can be used as a replacement for fossil fuels in the production of cement.

Cement production is a resource-hungry process with one ton of fossil fuel required to produce just four tons of cement.

This dependency on finite fossil fuels means that cement production is less sustainable and more expensive than it could be.

Using Solid Recovered Fuel instead provides a cleaner, more sustainable alternative which is better for the environment.
