Dear readers,

The cement industry has big plans for the next few years! In order to meet the climate targets that have been set, new technologies, new binding agents and energy sources must be developed and used as quickly as possible. There are certainly geographical differences in the speed of implementation, but in order to still be able to produce cement in the future, some things will certainly have to change. A good way to keep your finger on the pulse of developments is through mutual exchange. At the end of April/beginning of May, the cement plant engineering industry and cement manufacturers will meet in Denver/USA for the 66th Annual IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Industry Technical Conference. Mutual exchange will be emphasized in the context of technical paper presentations, training sessions, workshops, economic considerations and cement plant tours. Over 150 exhibitors will present their latest products in the exhibition hall. Only mutual exchange and joint further development will make us fit for the future. The ZKG Cement Lime Gypsum team will also be there and is already looking forward to many interesting discussions and encounters!

Have an interesting time with the current issue of ZKG

Dr. Petra Strunk
