The output of the Vietnamese cement industry ranks eighth over the world and according to the country’s master plan, it may be fifth by 2020. The lessons from the seminar hold many of the keys to actualise this target.
The two input factors making up the largest costs in cement production, coal and power, are on upward trends, while domestic demand has slowed down which significantly impacts the sales plans of manufacturing units. Additionally, labour productivity is still much lower than in other countries in the region, and tightened environmental control has put additional pressure on the cement industry.
Technical solutions for improving cement plants’ performance is the theme of the seminar held by DK Marketing Limited and Solari Group in Hanoi. Experts of Sweden’s Hoganas Group, a world-leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of smart refractory solutions, and LNVT Company under Sinoma International Engineering Co., Ltd., aworld famous for solutions to improve and increase the capacity of the mills and equipment for cement plants, attended the seminar.
