Print this page

Saudi Arabia: Saudi Electricity Company (SEC) has signed a co-operation agreement with Al Safwa Cement Company to reuse carbon ash and oil residues byproducts that result from the burning of heavy fuel in power generation plants. They will be used as an alternative source of energy at the cement plant, instead of being landfilled.

Khalid Bin Abdulrahman Al Tuaimi, the executive vice president for the generation at SEC, pointed out that SEC was the first company to adopt this policy. "This will reduce the dependence of the cement plant on heavy fuel, thereby reducing dependence on oil, which is a key element of the Kingdom Vision 2030 to restructure the national economy," he said.
