High grade dolomite in Algeria – BCB Baslimane Chaux Berriane

The Algerian company BCB Baslimane Chaux Berriane placed an order with Maerz for a 300 t/d natural gas-fired Maerz PFR kiln of type E5, including the up- and downstream plant equipment. The dolomite plant is located in Berriane, an area featuring one of the world’s top class dolomite deposits, which is the reason why BCB decided to modernise its existing plant featuring a small rotary kiln.

One of the technical challenges of building a kiln in the centre of the desert is the extremely high temperature in the Algerian summer, requiring appropriate adaptations in the kiln process design.

The kiln was lit late last year and is now in full industrial operation.
