FHKI "BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards 2022" - Visit to Green Island Cement Company Limited
On Monday, April 24th, 2023, FHKI organised a visit to Green Island Cement Company Limited ("GIC"), the winner of Silver Award in the manufacturing industry category of the "BOCHK Corporate Low-Carbon Environmental Leadership Awards 2022". The visit was aimed at providing its members with a first-hand experience of the company's innovative approach to environmental sustainability.
As the only operating integrated cement plant in Hong Kong, GIC is committed to reducing its carbon footprint by using recycled items as alternative fuels to burn mineral sand. During the visit, the participants had the unique opportunity to tour the laboratory and understand the entire cement manufacturing process and QA procedures. They also observed the preheating tower, rotary kiln, and combustion furnace, which helped them understand how the company uses cutting-edge technologies to efficiently convert waste into energy. By using recycled materials as alternative fuels, GIC has not only reduced its reliance on traditional fossil fuels but has also significantly reduced its burden on Hong Kong's landfills.
