The use of waste in the Russian cement industryAccording to the legislation of the Russian Federation, combustible industrial and municipal waste qualify as alternative fuels fit for use in the cement industry. Their use is one of the conditions necessary for conforming with the best technological requirements and it also helps reduce production costs in the cement industry. Certain amendments were implemented to the regulatory documents on Extended producer responsibility and waste disposal legislation in 2017-2020, which favor waste utilization in cement kilns. Some of the Russian cement plants already use waste as alternative fuels, a number of others undergo preparation for the process or explore opportunities in this field.
