Lafarge pilots recycled-cement production

Lafarge Canada and Geocycle Canada have completed a pilot at the Lafarge Brookfield Cement Plant in Nova Scotia. The project uses recycled minerals recovered from waste sources to produce high-quality clinker, the main ingredient in cement. The result is 100 percent recycled cement which, in turn, is the main component of concrete. The aim is to reduce CO2 levels by as much as 60 percent per tonne of clinker. Both Lafarge Canada and Geocycle Canada are part of Holcim Group.
