Tosoh began cement production in 1953
The idea of producing cement at a soda production plant using an ammonia soda process seemed both logical and economical.
Tosoh uses refuse-derived fuel (RDF) as raw fuel for its cement plant in cooperation with local environmental initiatives. RDF is produced by solidifying general refuse. Solidifying general refues to RDF allows a reduction in the weight of general refuse by nearly half.
The marketing and sale of Tosoh's entire cement production has been consigned to Taiheiyo Cement Corporation, one of Japan's leading cement manufacturers.
