Manufacturing technologies and market insights

We expect to enjoy a broad-based, international program, designed to bring all cement professionals up-to-date on the latest technical developments in cement manufacturing, in addition to timely assessments of worldwide cement markets and industry developments. A special focus on the Mediterranean and north African cement sectors will complement the coverage of activities elsewhere in Europe..

Key themes to be addressed at this conference include:

  • Global and regional cement markets
  • Regional trade and distribution
  • Plant expansion and upgrade projects
  • Environmental sustainability
  • Quarry operations, crushing technology
  • Raw material preparation
  • Pyroprocessing: preheater design, burners, kiln, refractories, clinker coolers
  • Conventional fuels / fuel-switching projects: gas, coal, petcoke
  • Alternative fuels: preparation, storage and burning
  • Grinding systems: VRM, ball mill, roller press
  • Strategies for energy efficiency
  • Waste heat recovery systems
  • Alternative raw materials: SCMs (including fly ash, GGBFS etc)
  • Process optimisation
  • Quality control & laboratory automation
  • Emissions control and monitoring
  • Bulk materials handling
  • Cement storage, packing and distribution
