In the first quarter of 2018, we launched Geocycle, a part of our business that offers waste management services to a variety of waste generation sectors. This was necessitated by the environmental challenges facing Nigeria - approximately 58 million tonnes of waste are generated annually, 90% of which are dumped, resulting in serious environmental impact.
The launch of Geocycle in Nigeria illustrates our commitment to building a circular economy that reaches beyond the building materials sector. Geocycle is Nigeria’s first full-fledged professional waste management service provider, handling waste from different sectors in a safe, sustainable and environmentally - friendly manner.


Lafarge Africa Plc Sustainability Forum - Geocycle



Through our Geocycle business, we collect waste directly from municipalities and industries, pre-process it in platforms and co-process (or reuse) it in our cement plants. Through co-processing (the complete destruction of waste in our cement kilns) we recover energy and recycle materials from different types of waste, ranging from household plastics to industrial chemicals.

The activities of Geocycle have strong environmental benefits for communities; they reduce the volume of landfilled waste, save public funds and create a cleaner living environment.
