Egypt Cement Manufacturing
After subsidised natural gas supplies were cut off back in 2014, cement manufacturers in Egypt were forced to turn to solid fuels, mostly coal and petroleum coke, to make sure their production was commercially viable and remained competitive. This wasn’t an easy move, and in addition to multiple plant conversion challenges, the increased usage of coal unleashed a wave of public dissatisfaction and concerns over increased emissions. The challenges did not stop there though. Fuel is by far the largest variable cost in cement production, and since most solid fuels are imported to Egypt, economic crisis and large fluctuations of the value of the local currency complicated the situation for cement manufacturers even further.
So, what is the right strategy to thrive in such an unstable economy? How to optimise production lines, improve efficiency and decrease the costs? How to ensure emissions and dust level are within the specified regulatory requirements? At the Egypt Cement Manufacturing Conference 2018, we will address these issues and many more. Come and hear real-life case studies from cement manufacturers and meet with leading industry vendors to find out about the latest market trends.
