November 2009

November is always a busy month, and this year is no exception. Conferences in Beirut (AUCBM) and Malága (Colloquia for Cement Plant Managers) are previewed in this issue, which will be distributed at both events. To coincide with these, we also feature a selection of plant stories from North Africa and the Middle East, and the latest innovations in efficiency and emissions reduction from Spanish companies. As this year's AUCBM Conference takes an environmental theme, the issue also highlights developments in filtration and dedusting technology.
