(Business in Cameroon) - After its project of lead extraction from recycled car batteries, Bocom Recycling now moves to produce environmentally friendly roof tiles. The tiles will be made with recycled plastic waste which are abudant in Cameroonian streets, we learned from credible sources.

According to the group’s executives, the tiles or “éco-tuiles” as they have been baptized, are strong, waterproof and help maintain an ambient temperature in houses they cover.

Bocom Recycling is a branch of Bocom, a Cameroonian industrial group. Apart from recycling, it also specializes in the distribution of oil products, industrial cleaning, and mining and plans to operate an iron mine in Akom II by building a steel complex at Fifinda, in southern Cameroon.
