Hitting the UK with Geocycle

Geocycle, the worldwide leader for providing industrial and municipal waste management services, has just launched operations in the United Kingdom.

Already operating in over 50 countries, Geocycle partners with companies to minimise and repurpose their waste sustainably.

It recognises that treating waste is outside the core competence of most organisations and can not only be time-consuming and costly, but also expose a firm to major environmental and reputational risk.

Geocycle specialise in co-processing, a unique technique of sustainable waste treatment that uses waste-derived materials as a substitute for fossil fuels and primary raw material in industrial processes.

The most ecological way to treat waste, co-processing uses cement kilns, at temperatures of 1400-2000 degrees centigrade, to process the waste, ensuring no residue is left, whilst recovering useful energy and material.

This approach is environmentally beneficial, as it reduces reliance on fossil fuels, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and preserves natural resources.

Michael Awanayah, General Manager of Geocycle UK, commented: “Organisations in the UK are increasingly adopting sustainable business practices, and co-processing provides a practical, cost-effective and environmentally-preferred option to landfills.

“We’re extremely excited to have launched Geocycle in the UK. With operations in Cauldon, Staffordshire and Cookstown, Northern Ireland in the UK and an extensive global network, we look forward to extending our offer to environmentally-responsible companies.”
