CEMENT INDUSTRIES MEETING  10/1/19

Initiated by Fondation Diane

  How reducing fuel usage in the cement industries 
can contribute  to help solving the waste crisis in Lebanon?

(Reduction of Environmental Impact & Fuel Cost by RDF* Usage)

For the first time in Lebanon, a meeting held at Fondation Diane offices  aiming to connect people in Cement Industries with all stakeholders to progress with a strong business case proving that using  RDF   * is a good alternative solution, economically and environmentally to burning fuel and help all present convince the Government and Communities that it is the right solution.

Knowing on the other side that it will decrease the quantity of waste dumping and will help to improve the quality of the waste sorting upstream.


RDF*:  Solid  Non-Hazardous waste that is not economically or technologically recyclable which can be Co-fired as a substitute for fuels in Cement Industry or in waste to energy plants, as a preferred alternative over landfilling or mass burning.  (Dr. Fouad Jaafar)
