With big cement companies in the Philippines starting to use alternative fuels and raw materials, the Environment Department has drawn the guidelines on the use of waste materials as production ingredients.

The guidelines contained in Administrative Order 2010-06 would ensure that the use of alternative fuels and raw materials in the cement industry is compatible with our existing national laws and policies on hazardous waste, waste management and air quality standards to reduce their environmental impacts, Environment Secretary Horacio Ramos said Wednesday.
