Ecological Sustainability

The Geocycle model offers its customers the benefits of ecological sustainability - it ensures total transformation of waste when incorporated into the cement making process. Specifically, organic material contributes to and is consumed by the combustion process and any residual inorganic component constitutes a raw material for the formation of cement clinker. Furthermore the high temperature of cement kilns (in excess of 1,800°C) and long residence time (4-6 seconds) mean that any harmful organics present are destroyed in the combustion process. Importantly the re-use of waste as an alternative fuel reduces the usage of non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal and also reduces the amount of (potentially hazardous) waste that would otherwise go to landfill.
