Vision, strategy and values
ZEME’s ambition is to make Cyprus a benchmark in environmental technology, research and innovation.
The Corporation aims to capture scrap aluminium and recovered plastic and to add value to them, converting the scrap aluminium into high value alloy ingots and the recovered plastic into liquid fuel that can be used locally or exported into Europe. This will have a significant positive impact upon the recycling targets of the country, as defined by the European Union, and will reduce the carbon footprint associated with waste disposal and import of liquid fuel.
In addition to the environmental benefits, ZEME will establish itself as a key specialized employer and provide long term opportunities for the local community. Initial employment is targeted at 53 people within 2018 with the numbers increasing to 83 in 2019.
