Cement producing companies ACC and Ambuja Cements have installed a so-called Geocycle Bubble Barrier plastic waste separator in Sunder Nagar, Himachal Pradesh, reports Cemfuels.com.
Reportedly, the separator will collect the waste for use as RDF fuel at ACC’s Gagal cement plant in the state. Back in April 2021, the Holcim India subsidiaries’ first such installation, on the Mantola Canal in Uttar Pradesh, was commissioned. It has collected 500 tons of plastic waste ever since, and is targeting at a total of 2,400 tons in 2022.
