MK3. New AFR line at the cement plant in Martres-Tolosane
The MK3 project consists of a new line of alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR) developed in the existing cement production plant in Martres-Tolosane (France), owned by LAFARGE-HOLCIM. This new line reduces the consumption of energy of fossil origin, lowers fuel costs and reduces the production of polluting waste. Advanced techniques that respect the ecosystem have been applied, aimed at environmental protection, achieving through these, that the use of alternative fuels reaches up to 85% of the total fuel used in the new production line, which translates into a reduction of carbon emissions by 28%.
