Emanuele Stancanelli, Bedeschi, discusses a range of machinery designed to help cement plants enhance their bulk materials handling capabilities, offering details on a number of projects they have undertaken over the last year.
According to the latest trends, on a global level, the cement industry is steadily expanding year-on-year. The rise of urbanisation, infrastructure expansion, and the overall development of construction activities are contributing to a significant increase in cement consumption. Indeed, projections for the growth of the global cement market show an increase in sales volume from the US$340.61 billion reached in 2022 to US$481.73 billion by 2029. After the Covid-19 outbreak there was a considerable easing of demand and thus also in cement production, which was overcome in 2021 with a slight demand increase when the global situation stabilised.
The rise of these trends will lead governments and cement manufacturers to increase their productivity, investments, and construction activities. Currently, the world’s largest cement market is China, where the construction sector is growing at a very fast pace with cement production capacity reaching 2.1 billion t in 2022. Following the Chinese market’s growth trends, several other Asian markets are growing at a rapid pace, such as those in India and Vietnam, with the US market permanently positioned as a top 5 cement producer worldwide.
In order to maintain the cement sector’s growth, it is very important for these leading countries, and cement producers more generally, to select the most eco-friendly machinery, equipped with modern technologies that are able to support their projects in the cement industry and guarantee that their production processes respect the relevant environmental standards.
The wider adoption of green cement to construct eco-friendly and sustainable buildings, and reduce the threats caused by emissions, is growing. To lower the impact of cement production on the environment, a global goal has been set, aiming at controlling and reducing cement industry emissions by 2050: this agreement has been co-signed by more than 77 countries and represents a new path for the global cement industry.
Reducing the emissions of the cement industry will play a pivotal role in addressing the challenge of climate change and Bedeschi is committed to helping to reach this global goal by utilising its 110 years of experience and the wide variety of solutions on offer. Bedeschi partners with cement companies looking for cutting-edge solutions for crushing, handling, and storing both raw materials and final products. The company’s experience with all kinds of raw materials and additives, together with a very high level of design, engineering, and manufacturing expertise, allow it to offer integrated solutions in order to meet every cement producer’s needs, from quarry extraction to mill feeding, in addition to import and export solutions for handling clinker and cement (on-shore and off-shore). The following are some examples of Bedeschi’s latest projects in the cement industry and their ability to offer tailor-made solutions for all kinds of operations.
