Natural Resources Conservation & Municipal Waste Management

FCCL works for sustainable environment through substantial investment on alternate fuels, raw materials R&D and equipment.

Natural Resources Conservation

FCCL is committed to preservation of natural resources for the coming generations. While maintaining the high quality standard of its product, FCCL has succeeded to substitute a considerable portion of raw materials from quarry with usage of lime stone dust from Margalla Crushers. This has not only helped in removing de-gradable waste from Margalla Hills Green Park, but as a result lime stone from FCCL quarries is also being conserved.

Municipal Waste Management

FCCL is pioneer in installing RDF plant in Pakistan Cement Industry, which consumes municipal waste and is used as an alternate fuel to coal/furnace oil and natural gas. The investment of more than Rs. 300 million has not only reduced dependence on use of fossil fuels but has also solved the problem of municipal waste removal from Metropolitans of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. The company has reached long term arrangements with Capital Development Authority as well as Rawalpindi Cantonment Board for usage of municipal wastes.

Continuous research in minimizing use of natural resources will not only help reduce the production costs (without compromising on the quality) but will also reduce/eliminate non-degradable wastes from the society, such as municipal wastes, used tyres and host of other harmful industrial/agricultural wastes.
