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.
Jan Kjærsgaard, recently appointed as FLSmidth’s Cement President, shares his views on the challenges and opportunities facing the cement production industry.
It’s a growing problem for many countries around the world: used car tyres piling up as authorities struggle to find effective disposal solutions. Heating and power plants can help solve the problem by burning tyres and other solid materials, creating energy for use in households and industry, including cement production.
Using alternative fuels means adapting several stages of the cement production flowsheet.
