Unlocking potential: the connected cement plant
Heavily dependent on the fluctuating construction industry, operating with legacy equipment and siloed operations, cement companies often lack a unified vision for digital investments.

Despite difficulty integrating, cement leaders recognise the need for innovative solutions that can help improve plant utilisation, optimise processes, reduce energy consumption — and facilitate compliance with CO2 and other emissions mandates.
