KHD at Cemtech Europe in Spain

This week the European conference on ‘Decarbonization of the cement industry’ took place in Barcelona. Leading cement manufacturers and equipment suppliers discussed the industry’s ambitions to deliver sustainable, low-carbon cement while navigating the major economic forces impacting current businesses. 

Meeting customers face-to-face again

After two years of Corona, this was the first “in-person” conference of this kind and a great success. In interesting presentations and heated debates, participants were able to exchange best practices and discuss the newest technologies and latest developments on this topic. Further, the leading equipment suppliers showcased their latest solutions and products at the exhibition site.

KHD contributed to the conference via a presentation held by our CTO Matthias Mersmann and a booth at the exhibition. The lively discussion after Matthias’ presentation and interested customers at the booth showed that KHD’s technology will play an essential role in the step towards CO2 neutrality. In particular, for the combustion of alternative fuels, the Pyrorotor® was a frequently requested product, but also newly developed solutions like the Clay Calciner and KHD’s ProMax® Suite were discussed with interested visitors, which demonstrates the high relevance of these products for the future of our industry.
