ACC has a robust approach to promote the use of Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials (AFRM) through the co-processing of hazardous and non-hazardous wastes in cement kilns. This gives us opportunities to offer unique and sustainable waste management solutions to waste generators - industries, municipalities and other bodies for an effective means of disposal of industrial wastes, municipal solid wastes and biomass. This task is undertaken under the umbrella of Geocycle.
We have always been on the forefront of understanding and managing environmental challenges sustainably. We understand that sustainable waste management is the need of the hour and we have taken the lead in providing safe waste management solutions to industries and municipalities.
Safe management of waste through co-processing, as done in a highly professional setting utilizing the avant-garde technology available in our plants, ensures complete destruction of waste. The waste is managed safely without any change in the cement kiln exhaust gas composition or leaving any residues. ACC has offered waste management services since 2005 and in 2014 these services were housed under the Geocycle brand. Our core drivers of value creation, customer service and technical excellence have combined to drive the business forward under this brand. Geo means ‘earth’ in Greek. Cycle evokes recycling. The name Geocycle alludes to the ‘holistic’ nature of what we do: turning unusable waste into a safe, usable resource. Geocycle India provides sustainable waste management solutions to industries, municipalities and the agriculture sector. We collaborate closely with the waste generators to understand their specific requirements and construct tailored solutions.
A passion for health, safety and the environment is at the heart of everything we do. Our state of the art processes and highest operational standards ensure that waste is safely managed protecting our employees; the communities and the environment in which we operate. Our solutions ensure that the environmental footprint of waste management is reduced.
Since the waste from different sources are highly variable in nature, for managing large waste volumes, a homogenized stream with uniform characteristics needs to be prepared from different incoming waste stream. This preparation process, or pre-processing, helps to produce a waste stream that complies with the technical specifications of cement production and ensures that environmental standards are met.
We take special precautions to ensure complete traceability and transparency; and adhere to all statutory laws and guidelines. In our pre-processing and co-processing operations we remain committed to complete regulatory compliance.
We believe in a future without waste, one that humanity can realize by minimizing and re-purposing waste. We look towards bringing the society a step closer to a zero-waste future and a brighter tomorrow.
