Hear from cement producers how they maximize alternative fuels in their production at the 15th Asia Cemen Trade Summit.
Asia is the catalyst of global recovery. The region is now THE go-to destination for construction investments, namely Myanmar, The Philippines, Malaysia, Laos, Indonesia, Cambodia & etc. Cement investors like Holcim, Cemex, YTL, Siam Cement are among the many who are expanding capacities in one or more of the above countries to meet the growing demand.
Demand for cement in Myanmar is expected to grow exponentially with the country’s thriving construction sector. The government has accorded high priority to infrastructure development projects, ranging from roads, ports facilities, airports, railways, communication systems, SEZ to housing, hotel developments & etc. Cement investors are rushing to tap the golden opportunities; expand their capacities and make inroads to build new plant to meet the supply shortfall.
Max Manufacturing is upgrading 2 of its old cement plants from wet to dry process, raising their capacity to 2100 ton/day each. KBZ Industries new 1000ton/day plant will be ready by end of this year. Several other expansions and constructions are underway. Is the cement industry expanding too fast with its many projects? What’s in place to avoid any impact for a nascent industry? What are the foreign ownership restrictions? Is financing too easily available?
Energy cost forms a large part of the input cost for cement production and companies are looking at ways to reduce their energy cost as well as to reduce their carbon footprint. Alternative fuels are becoming part and parcel of the energy mix utilized in cement operation.
