Vibrant transition of INSEE Ecocycle boosts Sri Lanka’s industrial sector
Feb 02, 2017 – The nation’s most renowned manufacturer of cement, construction aggregates and solutions, INSEE Cement, (earlier known as Holcim) and the only local manufacturer in Sri Lanka to introduce eco-friendly ‘green’ cement to the country, recently marked a significant milestone in the company’s history when it launched INSEE Ecocycle, an innovative initiative that enables industries to manage industrial waste. INSEE Ecocycle is the industrial waste management arm of INSEE Group.
INSEE Ecocycle was recently rebranded from Geocycle, introduced by Lafarge-Holcim, before Holcim was acquired by Siam City Cement (Lanka) Ltd. Geocycle pioneered the waste management industry in Sri Lanka, serving over 400 customers as a premium solution provider co-processing and eliminating over 500,000 metric tonnes of industrial waste over the past 14 years. This operation will continue to be carried out at the kiln at the company’s primary cement plant in Puttalam.
When INSEE Ecocycle was launched recently, INSEE Ecocycle General Manager Sanjeewa Chulakumara explained, “INSEE Ecocycle enjoys Siam City Cement group’s strength in the development of leading environmental systems. Being part of INSEE group, we are committed to creating a positive future and caring for the environment. With the launch of INSEE Ecocycle we look forward to contributing to sustainable development of the country. The vibrant transition of INSEE Ecocycle would result in significant improvements to the nation such as improving health and safety as well as environment protection. Our investments on people and uplifting the community will have a lasting impact, helping the nation to progress and prosper. INSEE Cement is firmly committed to sustainability across our value chain that will pave the way to a brighter future.”
