LafargeHolcim Bangladesh Ltd has completed the replacement of its 17km-long conveyor belt in an effort to reduce noise emissions. The belt was originally installed in 2004 and connects its limestone mine in India to its plant in Surma, Bangladesh.

The replacement project was completed in two phases and finished on 18 April, according to Harpal Singh, project head of operations at the Surma plant.

"We have finished the replacement work one day ahead of the schedule," said Mr Singh.

Waste management
The Surma facility has also successfully deployed LafargeHolcim’s waste management service, Geocycle, resulting in the disposal of 950t of waste in 2017. Furthermore, the facility has set a target to exceed this and manage 1200t of waste in 2018, according to The Daily Star.
