Advantages


Environmental enefits: reduction of fuel consumption, reduction of energy used for grinding clinker, reduction of air pollution.

Economic benefits: because of increased efficiency and better product quality, the annual savings at the facility amounted to 150 000 USD. The pay-back period of this investment was only four months.

Innovative aspects (ecologic, social and economic)


Optimisation of the production process in the cement kiln makes it possible to reduce fuel consumption and to increase quality of the product.
