From DUS Airport

6 minutes
You can use two train stations, 
1.) the long-distance train station "Duesseldorf Flughafen", which also serves local traffic and can be reached from the terminal via SkyTrain, or 2.) the suburban train station "Duesseldorf Flughafen Terminal" in the basement of the terminal. From the long-distance station, please take line S1 (direction Solingen). From the terminal S-Bahn station please take line S11 (direction Bergisch Gladbach). In both cases please get off at the stop "Duesseldorf-Derendorf". If you do not have a valid rail ticket with City Option or similar, you will need an "EinzelTicket Erwachsener" (single adult ticket) at price level A3 (also valid on the SkyTrain). It is available online (https://vdz.info/aptr) and at local DB or VRR ticket machines.

12 minutes
by taxi

From Central Station

6 minutes
Take the S 1 in the direction of Duisburg or Dortmund;
You can also take the S 6 in the direction of Essen or
the S 11 in the direction of „Duesseldorf Airport Terminal“;
in each case as far as the „Duesseldorf-Derendorf“ stop

Trainings

Durability of concrete

Participants will get a comprehensive overview of concepts for ensuring the durability of concrete structures. In addition to the damage mechanisms the concrete technology and design elements as well as the execution are explained. On the basis of examples the influence of the cement on durability-relevant parameters is going to be explained. Performance concepts and the principles of service life design are also addressed. For the participants it is possible to discuss their current issues from operational practice.

Trainings

Energy Balances and Efficiency

This training will provide knowledge of how to conduct and evaluate cement kiln and mill trials. Kiln and mill examinations are carried out in order to gather data on the performance and to validate warranty performance data such as the output, the energy consumption, input/output ratio or the efficiency. They also provide a reliable foundation for the optimisation of individual operational system components, the cement quality, the reduction of emissions levels and for assessment of material cycles and coating formations.

Crash 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 cement plant with a state-of-the-art supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA).

Firing Alternative Fuels

This course 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.
