ICR December 2020 Issue
ICR’s December issue will close the year by looking at one of the fastest-growing cement markets in southeast Asia. The Philippines’ cement market has seen many changes in the last few years, with new entrants and importers trying to play a part in the country’s ‘Build, Build, Build’ infrastructure programme. Holtec Engineering assesses the country’s prospects for growth and main influences on cement demand in its market report.
The issue also features plant expansion reports from Philippine producers, Republic Cement and LafargeHolcim, as well as a project to restore an ESP unit for a raw mill in the Philippines.
Elsewhere, ICR delivers a smart plant technology review. Leading experts CBMI and Osisoft are among the suppliers that are enabling cement factories to go digital, while McKinsey & Company outlines its vision for the 21st Century cement plant.
