Asia Cement Corporation Hualien factory won the highest honor two-star award of the "recycling group". Zhang Zhipeng, deputy president and General Plant Manager (senior executive vice president) of Asia Cement Corporation, said that due to the process characteristics of the cement industry, the firing temperature of the rotary kiln exceeds 1400 degrees, which can not only effectively remove waste, but also be used as alternative raw materials and alternative fuels to greatly reduce the consumption of natural resources. It is an important promoter of recycled economy. Asia Cement Corporation is very happy to share its experience in resource reuse, join hands with the cement industry, expand the amount of waste energy, actively promote the transformation of energy resources, and let Taiwan move towards a green home of sustainable regeneration.

Asia Cement Corporation stressed that Hualien plant has promoted recycled economy for many years and has long assisted government agencies, state-owned units and private enterprises in recycling waste. Last year, the total treatment volume was nearly 240000 tons, the largest of which was to convert furnace slag generated by the iron and steel industry into raw materials that can replace limestone; Waste wood, pulp and paper sludge with biomass energy can also be transformed into fuel that can replace coal. In particular, last year, all the water purification sludge of Taipei waterworks were treated and reused by Asia Cement Corporation Hualien plant. If new Taipei city was added, a total of 83% of the water purification sludge in greater Taipei was treated by Asia Cement Corporation Hualien plant. Asia Cement Corporation is proud and honored to allow people in both northern and northern cities to use clean water.
