From Pile Head Waste to Building Materials Expanding Collaboration in Construction Industry
SCG developed innovation to enhance efficiency by CPAC Construction Solutions to work on waste reduction in construction work. These include using Building Information
Modeling (BIM) in aid of design and supervision, or apply modern technology to crush the waste of concrete pile head at building sites for recycling as material in a process known as Recycled Coarse Aggregate (RCA), or send for crushing at Waste Hub in case mobile machinery cannot be deployed onsite. To date over seven projects took part in waste concrete piling management resulting in 5,400 tons of recycled output.
SCG is committed to making circular economy happen in all business groups and for efficient waste management by promoting waste separation at source and deploying innovation to support waste management business and product development from recycled material.
The “Upcycling Milk Pouches” Project
SCG partners with the Department of Environmental Quality Promotion, and Office of Basic Education Commission to scale up the “Upcycling Milk Pouches” Project from a pilot project in Rayong and Suphanburi to cover a total of 1,300 schools in 15 provinces in the central region. Under the project, school children are encouraged to collect and turn in milk pouches for recycling under the slogan “changing behavior of new generation to optimize resource, segregate waste at source, and recycle.” Primary Education Area Offices and Regional Environment Offices of participating provinces join to set up 38 aggregation points, with SCG supporting “KoomKah” application to establish garbage bank to collect milk pouches for SCG to recycle as pellets to make plasticware such as desk, chair, plant pot. These items are distributed back to schools proportionate to their milk pouches contribution. This is deemed an effective collaborative partnership between the public, private and civic sectors, notably involving teachers and pupils nationwide
Waste Paper and Packaging Collection Collaborating with Urban Communities
waste paper and packaging as feedstock for recycling through application. We collaborate with housing projects and urban communities in with large population live and generating huge volume of waste.
In 2020 we began collaborating with Chewathai, Sansiri and Property Perfect estate developers to implement a waste separation scheme at housing estates to separate and aggregate used paper packaging for recycling process. We joined with Thailand Post in “Post reBOX” project to collect used paper packaging materials at post offices nationwide, to be sent back to SCG to manufacture desks and chairs, which we present as 2021 New Year gifts to 220 Border Patrol Police Schools across Thailand. In 2020, SCG has total of 60 partners, helping us aggregate 150 tons of used papers back for recycling at SCG plant.
Transforming Scrap Building Materials into Products and Substitute Materials
In the manufacturing of building materials, such as lightweight concrete, concrete roofs, ceramic roofs, fiber cement roofs, and ceramic sanitaryware, of the Cement-Building Materials Business, it is impossible to avoid waste from process, which must then be sent to landfill. The Cement-Building Materials Business has thus studied and analyzed the properties of its waste so as to use it as substitute for natural materials or process it into construction materials in collaboration with various organizations and communities.
Substitutes for virgin materials: Through collaboration, waste from one manufacturing plant can become substitute materials for another. For instance, ground concrete roofing and lightweight brick scraps can be used in place of natural sand in the production of paving blocks, and ground ceramic roof tiles and ceramic scraps in place of natural soil in the production of ceramic tiles. In 2021, over 12,000 tons of virgin materials were replaced by substitute materials thanks to a collaboration between eight manufacturing plants in SCG, and over 2,800 tons of virgin materials were saved as a result of a partnership between SCG’s manufacturing plants and two external factories. Furthermore, the company also contributed 540 tons of black soil residue to a community enterprise in Kaeng Koi District in Saraburi for use as substitute material for planting trees, generating a revenue of 460,000 baht for the community. • Converted into paving materials: Leftover lightweight concrete and scrap concrete roof tiles were processed into over 20,000 tons of subgrade/ subbase materials for sale. Scraps of concrete, fiber cement, and ceramic roofs were processed into building materials for temples, schools, and communities in 10 areas across Saraburi, Nakhon Prathom, and Bangkok for use in flood-proofing landscape adjustments.
