Global CemProcess is the new conference and exhibition for the cement industry that looks at process optimisation, de-bottlenecking, production maximisation and troubleshooting. With over 2500 cement plants around the world, many of them in sold-out or in hyper-competitive markets, the drive for each additional tonne of production and for process efficiency is ever-more important. Global CemProcess will take place in London, the easy-to-access world city with direct transport links to over 300 cities via its six airports. A variety of hotel and accommodation options are available for every budget.
The registration fee includes attendance at the conference and exhibition, conference proceedings book including delegate names/company/country and all available powerpoint slides, CD or memory stick including all available presentations in pdf or powerpoint format, participation in networking/speed-dating sessions, delegate name badge, special distribution magazine, conference briefcase, coffee breaks and snacks, lunches, welcome reception and farewell reception.

Hanson Ketton cement plant
The Ketton plant in Rutland is operated by Hanson, HeidelbergCement’s subsidiary in the UK. In operation since 1928, the plant has seen a total of eight kilns over the years. It currently operates Kiln 8, a 68m-long, 1.3Mt/yr capacity Polysius Dopol type 2442 kiln with a suspension pre-heater and AS precalciner. The plant was an early adopter of alternative fuels in the early 1990s. Today it uses a combination of paper/plastic waste, hazardous liquids, MBM and UK coal, with total thermal substitution by alternative fuels of around 65%.
The plant has invested heavily of late in environmental protection, packing equipment, a recent renovation of its vertical roller mill for raw meal and a solar plant that can supply up to a third of the plant’s electrical power during the summer months. Future investment in a new baghouse for the cooler will allow the ID fan to be upgraded, taking the kilns’ clinker capacity from 2750t/day to 3000t/day. It also plans major expansion of its quarry in the coming decades.
