Cementos Argos to increase TDF use

Argos, a cement company of Grupo Argos, has ratified its commitment to sustainability with the use of alternative fuels obtained from waste

Cementos Argos Commits Further to Sustainability

In Colombia, Cementos Argos suppliers are responsible for the collection and preparation of used tyres and other wastes, which are then taken to the Rioclaro and Cartagena plants, in order that they can be used as alternative fuels in the production process.

Since the beginning of the implementation of the sustainable disposal alternative, the company has co-processed more than 1.5 million tyres and has the capacity to introduce up to 65 000 tons per year in its process. This translates to about 4.5 million tyres. With this and with the help of suppliers that can prepare the waste, it could contribute to more than 40% of the solution of this problem.
