CEMEX Philippines’ US$235 million investment in a new cement line recently reached a milestone with the lifting of the new rotary kiln into position.
This rotary kiln is part of the Solid Cement Plant’s new cement line, which upon completion will add 1.5 million t of cement to its annual capacity, increasing its output to 3.4 million t.
“This milestone demonstrates our full commitment to the development of the country and brings us closer to further strengthening our position in providing the infrastructure and building needs for economic development,” Ignacio Mijares, CEMEX Holdings Philippines CEO and President, said.
Mr. Tong Laigou, Chairman and General Manager of CBMI Construction Co. Ltd, the company tapped by CEMEX to build the new cement line, applauded the lifting of this new rotary kiln in record time of two days. He said that the CBMI and CEMEX Philippines’ teams worked under strict protocols to secure safety of site and have also made great effort to achieve this milestone.
The Solid Cement new cement line boasts environment-friendly features that include the use of less energy as it is designed to reuse waste hot gases for drying raw materials, as well as the use of high efficiency bag filter technology to significantly improve dust emission control far below the actual regulation. Furthermore, CEMEX puts utmost priority in ensuring environmentally responsible operations through its proprietary technology Low Temperature Clinker that will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
