Autumn has arrived... the Northern hemisphere, and everywhere people are enjoying the splendid hues that nature takes on in this season, while reluctantly putting away their summer things for the winter, or making a last desperate attempt to prolong the brighter mood by installing a summery screensaver, or heading south again in one last escape to the sun.

But there can be no denying: somehow you’re glad when it starts raining! Now is the time of year to review current and upcoming projects without distraction, checking their profitability again before they land on the boardroom table. To gradually start planning for the winter overhaul, and fill the clinker silos. But maybe first a quick visit to one of the many autumn conferences to meet former and new colleagues from other group plants before the real hustle and bustle begins, or just hear the latest news and opinion in the industry.

Dear readers, may we modestly hope that you will also find a little time for us! Here is the place to find autumn season coverage (see our cover image), product information (filters, air cannons, etc.) plus new ideas and approaches on pneumatic feed technology, rotary kilns including cooling and coating, clinker mineralogy and gas cleaning.

And there’s always the chance, of course, of getting to know new and interesting people…
All of us here wish you enjoyable and inspiring reading!
Dr. Hubert Baier
