Cemex launched a business that receives, manages and recycles waste.

The new business is called Regenera, leveraging Cemex’s global footprint and ability to use nonrecyclable refuse and industrial byproducts as more sustainable substitutes for fossil fuels and natural raw materials.

Regenera aims to serve a diverse client base that includes industrial, manufacturing and waste collection companies, NGOs and governments. According to Cemex, Regenera provides sustainable solutions for three major waste streams: municipal and industrial; construction, demolition and excavation; and industrial byproducts. 

Regenera is present in Cemex’s four regions, including the U.S.

“The building materials industry can be a major contributor to a more circular society, and its role in sustainably disposing of waste and byproducts is key to a greener economy,” says Fernando González, CEO of Cemex. “Cemex has over 20 years of experience managing and utilizing alternative fuels and raw materials. Regenera is the natural evolution of this experience and an important avenue for revenue generation through sustainable businesses.”

In France, for instance, Regenera operates a multiservice dock located in an industrial harbor in Paris, offering a range of services to the construction industry. Regenera receives a variety of materials – including construction debris, excavated material and inert soil – which it sorts, processes and transforms into recycled aggregates or organic material used to restore quarries.
