Lafarge Canada seeks approval to burn waste plastic at Brookfield
Published: 02 July 2014


Lafarge Canada plans to apply to Nova Scotia’s Environment Department for a trial permit to burn waste plastic as an alternative fuel at its Brookfield cement plant.

 

The plastic would partially replace coal use at the works. The project is expected to create jobs in the local area, related to the preparation and transportation of the potential fuel.

 

The cement plant will run an open house on 17 July as part of the community consultation process.
