Ecodesign of Kilns stakeholders meeting

Save as PDF

On 29 March 2012, the third and final meeting regarding the ecodesign of industrial and laboratory furnaces and ovens, including cement kilns will be held in Brussels. In this respect, CEMBUREAU has learnt that a draft final report is due to be published shortly. CEMBUREAU is concerned that ecodesign criteria could be applied to cement kilns despite the fact that it would not be appropriate. Cement kilns are part of an integrated process. Hence, performance cannot be defined at kiln level only – wording to be improved but this is the general idea. The Association will provide input on behalf of the cement industry.
