Making the Thai cement sector more sustainable

Thailand heavily relies on the burning of fossil fuels for its cement industries, even though cement production is an emission-intensive activity – making up an estimated 5% of all global man-made CO2 emissions.

Sustainable Development Goals

3. Good Health and Well-Being

100 people

treated per day in mobile health clinics, providing valuable access to healthcare for communities

6. Clean Water and Sanitation

68,445 check dams

built to sustainably improve water sources

13. Climate Action

610,000 tonnes of CO2e

reduced on average annually, by a decreased reliance on fossil fuels.

15. Life on land

9,000 hectares of eucalyptus forest

planted, improving soil quality and biodiversity in nearby forests

The Solution

New infrastructure now enables the five cement manufacturing plants involved in this project to use alternative fuels and biomass residue, including rice husks, wood-processing residues and other agricultural waste. As as result, they have been able to reduce their dependence on fossil fuels such as the toxic mix of coal and lignite they previously used in their kilns.

The Impact

This project funds a range of social and environmental programs including health clinics to service the neighbouring communities, over 6,500 check dams for upstream forest conservation, school scholarships, mobile health clinics and the development of small-scale local industries. Farmers also now profit from a supplementary income and additional jobs have been created thanks to the project’s efficient supply chains and manufacturing processes for biomass fuels.
