November 2013

The key topics covered in the November issue include environment and energy efficiency, refractories and materials handling. In addition, we take a look at training, as Lafarge explains its blended learning approach and Kathryn Bellamy, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, focuses on building up a network of engineers working within the sector. This issue’s Regional Report turns to the Middle East and North Africa. This includes case studies, an analysis of market trends, as well as a preview of the 18th Arab International Cement Conference and Exhibition in Jordan. ASEC Cement’s Giorgio Bodo provides the Keynote article, where he discusses the obstacles thrown up by the political upheaval in the Middle East. Last but not least, the issue also features a report on the environmental regulations facing the Chinese cement industry and an interview with Alok Sanghi, Director of Sanghi Industries.
