Many cement plants rely upon air compressors to power pneumatic conveying systems. These systems transport product easily and quickly through pipes. Large cement companies can consume some 6000 GWh of power. In addition 35,500,000 GCal of heat for a total of 5Mt/yr, as much as the energy consumed by 0.6 million US residents per year. Lontra’s ground-breaking innovation offers a step-change in efficiency. Also associated benefits in production, maintenance and life-cycle cost.
As energy demands escalate across all aspects of our global society, energy costs rise and businesses face increased competition.
