Spain – Tyres for Buñol

Spain – Tyres for Buñol
Published: 21 April 2004

Territory and Housing councillor Rafael Blasco has authorised cement maker Cemex to carry out trials using industrial residues, prepared by Recitermia, as an alternative fuel, gradually replacing its present petcoke fuel at Buñol. The plant currently also uses bone meal as alternative fuel. During the six-month trial, air pollution will be monitored and compared with limits similar to those set out in the Royal Decree of Waste Incineration, which will come into force at the end of next year. The move is expected to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere as well as improve the management of industrial effluents in the community.
