Indonesia: JFE Engineering Corporation has started work on a 28MW waste heat recovery (WHR) project for PT Semen Indonesia, the leading state-owned cement company in Indonesia. The WHR project will be designed and manufactured by the Japanese engineering firm with installation by local contractors at the Tuban cement plant in West Java. Commissioned of the plant is scheduled for the end of 2014.
The Semen Indonesia project is the second WHR build JFE Engineering has undertaken in Indonesia following a previous project for Semen Padang. This project is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 130,000t at full load operation. Further collaboration between JFE Engineering and Semen Indonesia, following a strategic agreement signed on 23 October 2013, will see coordination between the companies on WHR projects and waste management in Indonesia and Vietnam.
The project from JFE Engineering is part of a feasibility study of the Joint Credit Mechanism (JCM) by the Ministry of Environment of Japan (MOEJ), to offset Japan's emissions targets through low carbon projects overseas. Once awarded accreditation on the scheme, the project will be supported by a subsidy from the MOEJ.
Indonesia: PT Semen Papua plans to build the first cement unit in Indonesian Papua province. The unit will be built in the Paumako port area, East Mimika according to Adolf Haley, head of the regional development planning board (Bappeda).
Construction is expected to start in 2013 once an environmental impact analysis has been signed by the Papua Governor, Lukas Enembe. The plant will produce cement in bulk with basic material supplied from other cement factories with packing in Timika. Initially the unit will have a cement production capacity of 0.5Mt/yr that will rise to 3Mt/yr by 2016.
The project will be financed by a number of banks, with Bank Papua, which is owned by the regional administration forming a consortium to raise fund for the project.

Germany: Dyckerhoff AG's Palatine cement plant in Göllheim, Germany has been operating an MPS 140 K mill for coal since 1983 and an old-style static classifer. As modern coal firing systems require a finer product quality, the customer has decided to purchase a high-efficiency SLS 1120 BK classifier from Gebr. Pfeiffer SE. The classifier is guaranteed to separate the material to a fineness of 3% R 90µm. It will be installed in mid February 2014.
