THE ENVIRONMENTAL - SOCIAL PILLAR: THE C&D WASTE RECYCLING UNIT

The construction and demomition (C&D) waste is one of the largest streams of waste in Cyprus. Since April 2020, Latomia Latouros Ltd holds a permit for Recycling C&D Waste to support Cyprus’ efforts in reducing landfilling operations of C&D waste and to improve environmental, economical and social life.

Latomia Latouros Ltd cooperates with Recycling Point – Latouros & Xenis Bros Ltd (one of its affiliate companies) for the sorting, processing and recycling of the waste it receives.

The purpose of the recycling plant is to sort the mixed C&D waste into 20 different components of waste, such as: concrete, asphalt, wood, metals, paper, plastic, glass, gypsum wallboard etc, and process the sorted waste to produce clean recycled aggregates that can be used again in the construction industry. The residual waste is transported to an energy recovery company in Cyprus that uses incineration to produce thermal energy. Only the waste that cannot be used for incineration, about 10% of the received waste, is destined for landfill

“Our goal is to achieve waste policy objectives by increasing both, the quantity and the quality of recycled C&D waste. We try our best to separate out from mixed waste, constituent materials of value, while minimizing the associated residual wastes destined for the landfill”

Antonis Antoniou Latouros, Managing Director at Latomia Latouros Ltd


THE ENVIRONMENTAL - ECONOMIC PILLAR: THE WATER RECYLING UNIT

  • All the 1,000m³/hour of water used at the two plants for washing the sand is then passed through a water recycling plant manufactured by French company MS, managing to retain 95% of the water used in the site’s production.
  • “We use around 1,000m³ of water per hour in our production. If you do not have a quality recycling system, it’s virtually impossible to operate in Cyprus due to water scarcity. The only water we lose is the humidity in our products and in the filter-pressed cakes.” Antonis Antoniou Latouros, Managing Director at Latomia Latouros Ltd The Water Recycling plant was installed in 2004 and is the only one on the island. In 2013, Latomia Latouros Ltd won a UEPG (European Aggregates Association) Environmental Best Practice Award for operating it.
