Keystone Cement is an industry leader in recycling. In 1976, Keystone Cement became a pioneer in resource recovery by burning for energy recovery through the recycling of high-Btu liquid wastes as a partial substitute for coal. Keystone continues this program today with state-of-the-art testing, loading and storage facilities that follow the strict guidelines set forth by the state and federal environmental agencies.
Keystone Cement uses alternative fuels to recover energy from waste. This means that a portion of the fossil fuels used to make cement is replaced by blended fuels made from other industries waste. After more than 40 years’ experience at using waste to recover energy, the use of waste as fuel at cement factories is one of the most efficient practices there is, because it reduces CO2 emissions while simultaneously providing an environmentally sound solution to our nation’s waste problem, while conserving natural resources.
Keystone Cement also reuses byproducts from other industrial processes as raw materials in the production of cement, as a replacement for natural raw materials.
