SOLPART at Cemtech Europe 2019
SOLPART took part in the 2019 Cemtech Europe conference, which was held in Berlin, Germany, from 30 September to 2 October. This international annual conference is one of the leading forums for up-to-date market and technical information on the cement sector. The 2019 edition gathered nearly 170 participants from 34 countries.
SOLPART’s consortium member Jan Baeyens, from European Powder & Process Technology – EPPT (Belgium), gave a presentation entitled “The SOLPART Concentrated Solar Thermal Treatment of Cement Raw Meal: Powder flowability as Critical Application Parameter” (> download the presentation here).
We also had a booth in the exhibition area, where we could network and present the SOLPART technology to potential partners and collaborators. Our presence turned out to be fruitful since nearly 30 direct contacts were made with interested stakeholders from the cement industry. Also, the SOLPART project featured in the September issue of the International Cement Review (ICR) with a 3-page-long article (download here). This publication was distributed to all the participants.
The conference was concluded over the Cement Industry Awards 2019. And the winners were:
- Cement Plant of the Year: Yanbu Cement Company (YCC), Saudi Arabia
- Cement Project of the Year: Cemex, Mexico, with Petuum, USA
- Environmental Excellence: w&p Zement, Austria
