The cement industry meeting point
The agenda is not restricted exclusively to refractory systems, however: trends on international markets and the effects of recent financial and banking crises on business in this important field were vital focuses of discussion at the last colloquium, and have certainly lost none of their topicality in the intervening four years. Papers on more general global economic themes, and a number specifically spotlighting the cement industry, will therefore also be on the agenda at this year’s event.
A representative social programme will provide a good opportunity for the attendees to build on what they had heard, to exchange information amongst colleagues and for networking. On 09.06.2012 the colloquium guests, along with the general public, will have the opportunity of seeing modern high-quality refractories production at first hand at Refratechnik’s Works No. 1, and of learning about new products in this sector at the company’s Göttingen headquarters.
