The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has named BEUMER Group as a winner of its Chairman's Manufacturing Performance Award 2020.

The Portland Cement Association (PCA) has named BEUMER Group as a winner of the renowned Chairman's Manufacturing Performance Award 2020.

With its AFR Systems (Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials) business unit, BEUMER Group supports cement producers in feeding calciners and main burners with alternative fuels and raw materials. The system provider develops complete solutions for efficient handling of different materials.

The production of cement has always been one of the most energy-intensive operations. In order to avoid expensive primary fuels such as carbon, gas, and oil, and to produce cement in a more economic and sustainable way, many factories have relied on alternative fuels for the incineration process in the calciner for several years. These include waste tyres, rubber chips, plastic, or other oleaginous mineral materials, as well as processed industry/household waste. With its AFR Systems business unit, BEUMER Group supports cement manufacturers with extensive know-how and customized systems. With this capability, it is able to supply and install the whole chain from acceptance and unloading of the delivery vehicle up to the storing, conveying, and feeding process of the solid alternative fuels for the specific user. The customer receives everything from one source.

The system provider has now been honored for this with the Chairman's Manufacturing Performance Award 2020, presented by the PCA, a leading organization in the cement industry. "I am very honored to receive this recognition on behalf of BEUMER Group,” said Brian Giese, BEUMER Corp. director of business development, conveying & loading. "It demonstrates our commitment to support cement manufacturers in their efforts to make production greener and more sustainable."

Founded in 1916, the PCA is the premier policy, research, education, and market intelligence organization serving America’s cement manufacturers. The award recognizes achievements in three areas--the development of innovative products, unique processes, and best-in class-practices--and was presented to three companies this year.
