Increased use of alternative fuels at CEMEX UK

CEMEX UK, has announced that it has replaced more than 52 % of the traditional fossil fuels used to heat its cement kilns with alternative fuels during 2010, up from 45 % in 2009. Based on the renewable organic materials content in the alternative fuels referred to as biomass, CEMEX saved nearly 194 000 tonnes of CO2 over a 12 month period across its cement plants. In the UK, CEMEX uses alternative fuels at its two cement plants which feature kilns, one in Rugby/Warwickshire and one in South ­Ferriby/North Lincolnshire. These plants used 49 % and 67 % alternative fuels respectively during 2010.
