JAMCEM provides the cement industry with advice and support through all levels of environmental improvement, from equipment optimisation to CO2 emission reduction strategy.  

In the simplest form, this can be assisting in the optimisation of existing pollution control equipment. The next level of support relates to the development of the environmental improvement plan for the plant. This is often required when new legislation is introduced and can relate to changes in materials and fuels and the installation of new environmental protection equipment.

JAMCEM can also make a major contribution to the overall reduction in the CO2 emissions from the cement manufacturing process. The starting point of this process is the optimisation of the fuel and power consumption of the plant and reducing process waste in areas such as the gas by-pass systems. Waste fuels and the use of biomass also play a significant role in the reduction of CO2 per tonne of clinker and JAMCEM experts can predict the process and environmental impact of these fuels as well as design handling and dosing systems of the fuel, regardless of material properties.

JAMCEMs product development specialists can assist in the formulation of cements with higher proportions of cementitious materials and fillers and the optimisation of these cement products. These cements lead to an overall reduction in the CO2 per tonne of cement, as well as increasing the effective capacity of the plant. JAMCEM also advises on the performance of any such new products in concrete.
