Intense technology discussions from 88 participants representing 33 cement companies across India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka set the backdrop for the summit. Discussions centered around the important topics of energy, efficiency and environment. Participants shared their experiences, challenges and expectations regarding KHD, in helping them achieve global benchmarks in these areas. Industry leaders, decision makers and technical teams from all major Indian cement producers enriched the lively dialogue and workshops at the two-day event.   

Industry experts held presentations on some of the most pressing issues in the Indian cement industry. KHD team members from India and Germany, including Group Management Board Members Daniel U­ttelbach and Jürgen Luckas led compelling presentations on KHD’s way forward, NOx abatement, optimal operational parameters as well as new energy-efficient grinding systems, using KHD’s market-leading roller press technology.

Partici­pants also gained insight into KHD’s wide range of plant services as well as how they can upgrade and modernize their plants to achieve more efficiency and output.

The event marked another milestone: Ashok Dembla took over from Christo­ffer Ribbing as Managing Director of KHD’s Indian operations. Mr. Dembla is no stranger to KHD and until 2009 played a key role in building the Indian organization.
