CEMEX Launches Regenera Waste Management Business
CEMEX, a global building materials company, announced the launch of Regenera, a business that offers solutions for circularity, such as waste collection, management, recycling, and coprocessing.
Regenera, developed by CEMEX, aims to use non-recyclable refuse and industrial byproducts as alternative sources of fuel and raw materials in their production processes. It utilises CEMEX's worldwide presence and production capabilities to promote sustainability by reducing the use of fossil fuels and natural resources.
Regenera will provide sustainable solutions for three major waste streams: municipal and industrial, construction, demolition, and excavation (CDEW), and industrial byproducts. It works with a wide range of clients, such as industrial, manufacturing, and waste collection companies, as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and governments.
It is present in CEMEX's four regions: Mexico, the US, Europe the Middle East and Asia, and South-Central America and the Caribbean. This lets CEMEX offer its environmentally friendly solutions to a wide range of customers in different parts of the world.
Fernando A. González, CEO of CEMEX, said, "The building materials industry can do a lot to make society more circular, and its role in getting sustainably rid of waste and byproducts is key to a greener economy. CEMEX has over 20 years of experience managing and utilising alternative fuels and raw materials; Regenera is the natural evolution of this experience and an important avenue for revenue generation through sustainable businesses.”
