CEMEX to build 4.5 MW waste-to-heat facility in the Philippines
A unit of cement-maker CEMEX Holdings Philippines Inc has signed an agreement with Sinoma Energy Conservation Ltd of China to build and operate a 4.5 MW waste-heat-to-energy (WHTE) facility in Naga, Cebu. In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, CEMEX announced that the WHTE deal had been signed by its subsidiary APO Cement Corp. The power facility will have the capacity to capture excess heat from the cement plant's kiln and convert it into usable energy. This technology is expected to generate 25,000 MW-hours annually. The WHTE facility is expected to mitigate the negative effects of power service interruptions, help reduce dependence on high-cost power sources, and reduce the cement plant's carbon footprint, the company said.
