Cemex Philippines is to construct a waste heat recovery power plant at its Solid Cement plant in Antipolo City, Rizal Province.

Cemex regional president for Asia, Joaquin Miguel Estrada, announced the plan following the signing of an agreement with Sinoma Energy Conservation of China who will build the waste heat-to-energy facility, a first for the Cemex group of cement plants worldwide.

“Cemex is a company that wants to achieve a corporate objective of lower operational costs, and also push an agenda to lower our carbon footprint, and this project is proof positive of our commitment to sustainable development,” Estrada said.

Under the contract signed in Beijing, China, Sinoma will design, build, operate and manage the 6MW power plant.

The Antipolo project is also a first for Sinoma outside China, the Manila Stanard reported. “This project is not only the first waste heat recovery investment project, which cooperates with Cemex Group, but also the first exploration of Chinese corporation investing in the construction of waste heat recovery power station overseas,”  Zhang Qi, Sinoma EC chairman, said.
