CW Group is pleased to announce the publication of the 31st issue of CemWeek Magazine. This issue provides in depth features about the CW Research’s Global Cement Volume Forecast for 1H2016, innovation for a sustainable cement industry and feasible alternative fuels use.

Here are some of the topics covered in the latest edition of the magazine:

  • The current issue of CemWeek Magazine presents the latest developments regarding the cement volume demand. The story outlines trends and figures from the CW Research’s March update of Global Cement Volume Forecast Report, with a focus on the slowdown following China’s significant decline, bringing the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) down to 0.6 percent, according to the 1H2016 update. The areas where the strongest growth is expected are the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan.
  • Another major topic covered in this issue is the need for innovation in the cement industry. With an estimated 10 percent of global GDP value, the construction and cement industries are now in a constant race of technological improvements. Alta Schoultz, Head of Innovation at Pretoria Portland Cement, enumerates different platforms and programs in the industry focusing on resource efficiency, materials’ cost and opportunity costs of waste.
  • CemWeek Magazine’s 31st issue comes with a complete feature about cement fusion technique used by the Navas Instruments company. The fusion bead method offers the advantage of transforming all elements to the oxide form regardless of their compound derivations. It also accurately corrects these effects of iron ore and copper concentrate. The procedure provides users with a unique ability to weigh the sample into the crucible and record the weight.
  • The Feb/Mar issue also includes all the insights about the 11th edition of the Brazilian & Latin American Cement & Lime Conference - CBI Brazil & LatAm 2016. Held on the 24th and 25th of February at the Tivoli Mofarrej Hotel in Sao Paulo the conference exceeded the expectations of the industry professionals attending the event, demonstrating that despite facing the toughest market conditions in 20 years, the cement and lime industries are consolidating their position and adapting their strategy to respond to the competitiveness of the international market.
