GEOCYCLE CANADA
KEEPS THE CIRCULAR
ECONOMY SPINNING
 BY TIM RAUF
GEOCYCLE CANADA is an organization with crosshairs on
a zero-waste future. A wholly owned subsidiary of building
solutions powerhouse Lafarge Canada, the company partners
with industries, service companies and municipalities to
help these players reach their environmental commitments.
CANADIAN ARM OF GLOBAL
GEOCYCLE NETWORK
HELPS PARTNERS ACHIEVE
ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENTS,
USING PRACTICAL, ECONOMICAL
AND SUSTAINABLE WASTE
MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS
Using the technologies of pre-processing and co-processing,
Geocycle Canada recycles various waste materials and industrial
by-products in its cement manufacturing operations.
This process is integral to the company's goals of building
a circular economy and zero-waste society, and serving the
needs of their customers by reinforcing commitments to sustainability.
The materials they receive include construction
and demolition wastes, non-recyclable plastics, and other
industrial byproducts which can't end up as anything else but
landfill adornment.
That worthy goal, and the technology Geocycle Canada uses
to accomplish it, is what gives the company its X factor, according
to Geocycle Senior Manager, Western Canada, Rustam
Punja.

" Our X factor is the fact that we have a
kiln, and we have a beneficial reuse of
these materials at the end of the day, and
we help our customers to achieve their
green goals " he explains.
During co-processing, the kiln itself can produce temperatures
up to 1500°C. That impressive temperature causes
complete destruction of the waste materials, meaning there
is no polluting smoke that goes out into the atmosphere.
