Research projects


Current

Recycled clay brick containing materials as a raw material in resource efficient cements and durable concretes

The topic of the research project is the utilisation of brick-containing materials from the recycling of mineral construction waste. It is being investigated whether and how resource-efficient cements can be produced with processed brick-containing construction waste and reduced clinker content, thus reducing process-related CO₂ emissions.

Current

Investigation of the robustness of AI-applications for process optimisation in cement manufacturing

AI applications or machine learning applications such as soft sensors or assistance systems for production controllers represent promising solutions for process control and optimisation. However, this requires robust AI applications that do not jeopardise the operational safety of the complex production facilities in the cement industry.

Congress

International­ VDZ Congress 2018

Climate protection and digitisation are key challenges for the cement industry: More than 600 representatives from the international cement industry and associated suppliers, as well as from scientific and research institutes around the world, gathered at the International VDZ Congress 2018 in Duesseldorf at the end of September. Steeped in tradition, the VDZ Congress is one of the world's most important events in the industry. The 40 talks held at this year's congress focused on particularly pressing topics such as climate protection and digitisation. The participants also discussed current technical challenges and the general situation with regard to cement production. A further highlight was an evening ceremony at which the winners of the VDZ Industrial Safety Prize 2017 received their awards.
