The BEUMER Group has been named by the Portland Cement Association as a 2020 PCA Chairman’s Manufacturing Performance Award winner for its innovative ‘Efficient Alternative Fuel Handling for Main Burner Firing’ system.
The BEUMER alternative fuels handling system unloads, screens, conveys, doses, and continuously feeds Refuse Derived Fuels (RDF) to the main burner of a cement plant.
BEUMER’s specialised technology addresses the industry’s desire to use alternative fuels, including industry/household waste, biomass and used tyres to decrease dependency on fossil fuels and supports the industry’s efforts to reduce both costs and environmental impacts in existing cement plants.
"I am very honoured to receive this recognition from the Portland Cement Association (PCA) on behalf of BEUMER Group for our alternative fuel handling technology,” said Brian Giese, BEUMER Corporation Director of Business Development – Conveying & Loading.
“The work done by the PCA and its members to further the environmental contributions of the cement industry is crucial to the development of a more sustainable industry,” Giese said.
Founded in 1916, the PCA is the premier policy, research, education, and market intelligence organisation serving America’s cement manufacturers. The PCA Chairman’s Awards recognise achievements in three areas: innovative products, unique processes, and best-in class-practices.
The award was one of three presented by the cement industry’s organisation, representing more than 90% of US cement production capacity.
