Siam City Cement (SCCC) has renamed its EcoSiam business unit Geocycle, in line with the policy of its major shareholder, Holcim, to focus more on waste management under a global brand that abides by international standards, The Nation reports.
"This change is a major step to assure all of our practices will continue to meet international standards," said Geocycle general manager Ghassan Broummana.
"Moreover, being part of the Geocycle global network, we have a unique line of access to the expertise and experience within our network facilities in more than 35 countries."
SCCC is a unit of the Holcim.
SCCC established EcoSiam, a dedicated business unit responsible for alternative fuels and raw materials, in 2005 at a time when Thailand’s industrial-waste output was increasing.
It is estimated that the Kingdom generates more than 10Mt of industrial waste each year.
