December 2009

The December issue includes three articles detailing energy saving initiatives taken by North American cement companies under guidance from the US EPA. We then look at kiln and clinker cooler repair, maintenance and replacement, which gives you a taste of what to expect from the January issue. The issue concludes with articles from burner manufacturers, which outline how to save money and optimise performance by choosing the right tool for the job.
