Nominate now in the Global CemPower Awards 2015 (nominations close on 1 May)
Registration is £495 until 30 April and then £595 from 1 May. Confirmed speakers register for £295, while confirmed cement producer speakers register free. The social evening on the evening of 1 June is bookable separately at £60.
Global CemPower Conference is to take place for the third time in London in 2015, and will look at a topic that accounts for one third of the cement industry's total costs: Electrical power.
The 3rd Global CemPower Conference has evolved to cover additional subject areas, and will not only look at waste heat recovery for cement and lime, but will also examine captive power generation options (including coal, oil, gas, diesel, hydroelectric, wind and solar), grinding optimisation (grinding processes are the largest single consumers of electrical power in the cement plant) and the wider issue of electrical energy efficiency in the cement and lime industries.
With the variability in fuel and electricity costs, the cement industry is presented with both a problem and an opportunity. The cement industry uses huge amounts of fuel and electrical power, and is critically sensitive to price rises in both. The industry worldwide is also vulnerable to power-cuts and reduction in power quality - so-called 'brownouts.' However, the cement - and lime - industry is also perfectly located to take advantage of the situation, through the use of waste heat recovery systems and other captive generation units. Using waste heat recovery for example, the cement industry can regain the energy in its waste-gasses and use it to generate electricity, thus partly insulating itself from electricity price increases as well as improving its overall efficiency. Cement producers (particularly in India and Japan) have also built themselves captive power units using wind, hydro-electric, diesel, gas, coal, oil, alternative fuels and biomass.
Grinding uses up around one third of the electrical energy requirements of each integrated cement plant, so that improvements in grinding processes can have a huge impact in overall electrical energy demand. The conference will look at new technologies in grinding, as well as grinding efficiency improvements.
The conference will also study the suite of techniques and appraoches that are available to all cement producers to reduce electrical energy consumption throughout their plants, from changing motors and optimising fan designs, to simpler but no-less -effective methods such as intelligent lighting schemes and the scheduling of periodic equipment operation for lower-cost electricity periods.

2nd Global CemPower Conference
4-5 June 2013, Glaziers Hall, London, UK
The 2nd Global CemPower Conference and Exhibition has successfully taken place in London again, after the highly successful first edition in the city. CemPower is the largest global gathering of experts on waste heat recovery, captive power generation and electrical energy efficiency in the cement and lime industries.
Please note: Global CemPower is not to be confused with bboy cem power!
