Bamburi Cement is the only cement company in Sub Saharan that is committed to rehabilitation. We acknowledge that we are responsible for mitigating the impact of our production process to the environment. We have been rehabilitating the mined land for the last 45 years, long before we were expected to be doing it and we will continue to do so over the generations to come.

We are green cement because we ensure that our production entails “green” processes and that we are as environmentally friendly as possible. During the process of clinker production, Mombasa Plant therefore employs several measures to reduce on the carbon footprint and optimize on the cost of production.

These include:

  1. Alternative fuel – The process of producing cement and clinker, which is the main component of cement, is energy intensive. The major energy consumption equipment includes electricity through the highly rated electric motors and coal as the main fuel during the clinkering process. Alternative fuel sources include: biomass, old tyres and waste oil
  2. Waste incineration – Mombasa Plant, which has a NEMA license for waste incineration, co-operates with different government agencies, private corporations and Non-Governmental organizations to receive, co-process and incinerate contaminated assorted food stuff and impounded imported goods.
  3. Energy efficiency – the plant has taken Energy Conservation Measures to reduce on the consumption and cost of production relating to energy by installation of high efficiency motors, variable speed drives, power factor correction panels, energy saving LED lighting, process optimization, and waste heat recovery from exhaust gases from the kiln to dry raw material and raw coal.
  4. Stack emissions – MsaP has controlled processes for stack emission within the statutory requirement. The Plant has filters for each of the kilns ensuring the stack particulate emission is within the NEMA requirement.

If you are an environmentally conscious person, if you care for the environment, then Bamburi Cement is the brand you need to buy. This is because you are assured that for every bag of cement bought, there is effort made to restore the environment and to use environmentally friendly production processes.
It is for these reasons that we say Bamburi Cement is a green cement.
