As a technology leader in the mining and cement industries, we consider it our responsibility to be a key sustainability partner for our stakeholders, driving sustainable business practices across the industry value chains

Replacing filter bags on demand may seem like a convenient way of managing maintenance costs. But waiting to replace bags at the point of failure, or just before, can lead to a greater risk of non-compliance with emissions standards, higher costs, and higher overall emissions levels. So why are some cement producers opting for partial replacement over full?

Reduce your cement plant’s NOx emissions. Get peace of mind by achieving your NOx emissions limits. In many cases, without needing ammonia injection. The Low NOx Calciner is our latest and most advanced in-line calciner ever. It’s based on extensive research and field experience as well as more than 50 years of helping cement producers lower their NOx emissions. The Low NOx Calciner is suitable for both upgrades and new installations.

The 1980s saw the beginnings of a shift in the cement industry. Slowly and steadily, cement producers began to adopt vertical roller mills (VRMs) for cement grinding instead of ball mills.

Vertical roller mills have long been recognised as the industry standard for raw mills – and are quickly gaining ground as cement grinders.

Understanding the unique environment in which the plant operates, including local legislation, is crucial to becoming compliant.

Cement producers are increasingly adopting digital solutions across the flowsheet, not just to support automation and process control, but also to reduce fuel consumption, increase production, and improve product quality.
