Crash Course for Young Engineers and Young Scientists

The cement industry provides excellent job opportunities for young engineers and scientists. Training schemes introduce these new employees to cement technology, taking their different professional backgrounds into account. This online course provides a one-week in-depth training session which covers all relevant aspects of cement technology including chemistry, mineralogy and environmental aspects. Quality control as well as cement performance in mortar and concrete will also be covered.

Basic Course Process Control

The SIMULEX® cement plant simulator for training plant supervisors, foremen, production personnel, control room operators and young engineers was developed by KHD Humboldt Wedag AG in cooperation with VDZ. For over ten years VDZ has been using the simulator within the framework of training courses and has been continually supporting the further development of the system with practical input from the industry. As a result, the simulator provides a realistic reconstruction of a production plant with a state-of-the-art supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA).

Firing Alternative Fuels: Opportunities, impacts on process, optimisation and limitations (Training course 2)

VDZ offers an online course that covers all the relevant aspects concerning the use of alternative fuels in cement plants. Starting with the main political drivers such as the circular economy and the European waste fuel strategy, the training will give a detailed view of the current state-of-the-art-situation with regard to the use of alternative fuels in the EU. In this context, pre-treatment and suitable quality control of alternative fuels will be also explained and presented. A main focus will be given to the drivers and barriers of the use of alternative fuels within the burning process. Relevant aspects will be explained and discussed with the participants. Finally, technical feasibilities, case studies and possible optimisation potential will be part of the training course. This training course provides four half-day training sessions in a webinar format. This unique format enables the employees to combine an adequate learning pace with their daily work in the plant.

Environmental Data of the German Cement Industry 2021

In keeping with our time-honoured tradition, this year's edition of the "Environmental data of the German cement industry" again provides an in-depth insight into the use of raw materials, energy input and the various emissions produced by German cement manufacturers. This encompasses not only the dust and dust bound constituents, but also the inorganic and organic exhaust gas compounds. A further aspect of our environmental data is information on carbon dioxide emissions, the reduction of which is a particular focal point in connection with the decarbonisation of cement production.

Fresh concrete properties and hardening behaviour of concretes with clinker-efficient cements CEM II/C and CEM VI

EN 197-5 defined the clinker-efficient cements CEM II/C and CEM VI. Technical approvals for the application of CEM II/C cements have been issued. For a widespread application, it is important that all parties involved develop confidence in the new products. With new findings on fresh concrete properties, hardening behaviour and durability two research projects of the VDZ Concrete Technology Department will provide an important basis for application of these cements in concrete for the construction industry.
