Energy efficiency, the conscious use of raw materials and fossil fuels and their replacement with alternative ones, and the implementation of efficient waste management systems are proven means of adding value throughout the value chain as well as providing waste management solutions at a local level. ANTEA thoroughly monitors energy consumption and efficiency to reduce its environmental footprint and curtail costs. As energy management is intricately connected to the sector’s decarbonization roadmap, as well as resource efficiency, the investments during the plant construction phase were performed in low energy demand equipment and in energy efficiency management.
ANTEA Cement successfully addressed the challenges of cement demand both in the domestic and export markets and capitalized its result on such demand. At the same time, ANTEA remained focused on the enduring objective of balanced, responsible, and sustainable long-term growth, embracing change as an organization, and innovating at an accelerated pace.
