​Birkenhead additional wood firing project

Adelaide Brighton Cement understands the importance of corporate responsibility and the impact cement production has on the environment. To reduce greenhouse gas emissions, they are looking to alternative fuel options which are more efficient yet retain productivity.

Through the Birkenhead Additional Wood Firing Project, alternative fuels which are refuse derived but energy rich will replace gas as a source of thermal energy in the cement manufacturing process. By participating in the Emissions Reduction Fund and using refuse derived fuel, Adelaide Brighton Cement is reducing the volume of waste disposed of at landfill while reducing the company’s use of energy from non-renewable sources. The use of alternative raw materials also provides substantial reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from the cement manufacturing process.
