Siam City Cement to invest in alternative fuel
Published: 21 June 2006

Siam City Cement plans to set up a new power plant burning industrial waste, a report in Krungthep Turakij said.  Holcim, the major shareholder in Siam City Cement, has been successful in building a trash-burning power plant at its factory in Ziggenthal, Switzerland. The company hopes to use the same technology to set up a trash-burning power plant to provide energy for its plant in Saraburi, Thailand. The project will cost US$20-30m. It will use mainly old tyres and used oil as fuel, as well as other rubbish.
