Cemex’s Lloseta plant in Mallorca, Spain, has recently completed a EUR16m investment with a range of initiatives that have lowered the plant’s environmental and visual impact. Moreover, through the increased utilisation of alternative fuels, Lloseta’s fuel substitution rate has risen substantially over the course of the programme, helping to achieve considerable CO2 savings. By Cemex, Spain.
Aware of the effects of its cement operations on the environment and recognising its responsibilty to the environment and the neighbouring communites in which it operates, Cemex has been actively looking to reduce the impact of its Lloseta plant in Mallorca, Spain, as well as optimise energy efficiency and increase alternative fuels usage at the plant.
In 2006 the company launched an Environmental Improvement Plan (EIP) for the Lloseta works, aimed at ensuring its industrial activity did not affect other key activities in the area such as agriculture and tourism, or the surrounding area.
