Coming home

“I’m out of the office right now ...” Have you perhaps just received an automated email reply like this one, or maybe just set it up yourself?

It’s the holiday season, and many of you will be taking the chance to switch off, to spend some time with friends and family, finish a few unfinished chores, or just relax with a good book. Or maybe you only received this issue once you’d got back from your holiday?

Whatever the case, here you can read what’s been happening in the meantime, accompany us in your mind on our plant visit to Rohrdorf in Southern Bavaria, travel with us once again to interesting countries and important markets, or simply put your feet up and learn about the latest product developments, the use of alternative raw materials, or how solid alternative fuels are handled and metered in cement plants.

We have dedicated a large part of this issue to market analyses and development forecasts. Read about the role of the so-called BRIC countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China – and the part they will play up to 2030, but also Eastern Europe and Central Asia, particularly with regard to Belarus and Kazakhstan.

In addition, we take another look at the development of the cement industry in terms of fossil fuels during the next 100 years and present to you the use of silica-filter residues as an alternative raw material and the hydrophobizing of gypsum by silanes.

With such a diversity of topics you will quickly realize that you are home again!
