VDZ Congress 2018: Climate protection and digitisation are key challenges for the cement industry

VDZ President Christian Knell opening the congress
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. continue

New VDZ endowed professorship at Hochschule Duesseldorf, University of Applied Sciences (HSD)

New VDZ endowed professorship at Hochschule Duesseldorf, University of Applied Sciences (HSD)
On 15 August 2018, Hochschule Duesseldorf, University of Applied Sciences (HSD) and VDZ signed an agreement on the establishment of a part-time endowed professorship in the area of "Process engineering in cement production" at the HSD Faculty of Mechanical and Process Engineering. With effect from 1 September 2018, the post of endowed professor is to be taken up by Dr Philipp Fleiger, who is head of the "Digital process support" department at VDZ and has been researching and working in the field of mechanical process engineering for many years. By establishing this endowed professorship, VDZ is helping to develop the range of qualifications in the field of cement process engineering. For HSD and VDZ the professorship is a further important milestone in their long-standing fruitful relationship which has already given countless students the opportunity to gain work experience or complete their thesis at VDZ for example. continue

Workshop on carbon capture technologies in the cement industry on 17 October 2018 and new CEMCAP film

The CEMCAP film
A workshop on innovative carbon capture technologies in the cement industry will take place in Brussels on 17 October 2018. The event, organised by ECRA and the research groups CEMCAP and CLEANKER, will investigate the technological and economical boundary conditions for application of carbon capture and storage technology in the cement industry. Participation is free of charge. The CEMCAP project on carbon capture and storage in cement production has also recently released a film providing information about the innovative oxyfuel cooler technology. VDZ is involved both in the CEMCAP project and in the CLEANKER project, which researches carbon capture and storage by means of calcium looping. continue

Cement industry presents innovative research projects for CO2 abatement at 23rd global climate conference (COP23)

Cement industry presents innovative research projects for CO<sub>2</sub> abatement at 23<sup>rd</sup> global climate conference (COP23)
German and international cement industries have presented innovative research projects in the field of CO2 abatement at the 23rd UN climate conference (COP23) in Bonn. The event “Low Carbon Innovation in the Cement and Chemicals Industries: Status quo and Perspectives” was held on 11 November 2017 in the German Pavilion. For around a decade, the cement industry has been researching technologies suitable for carbon capture as a precondition for the storage or later utilisation of CO2. Now the industry is ready to test one of these technologies on an industrial scale in Europe. continue
