Our feasibility studies team has a unique blend of experience of technical commercial details and backgrounds utilizing innovative analysis and reporting methods. Our team’s experience consists of actual first hand industrial experience and very detailed observational skill-sets. The end result is to present the site with information in the form of a detailed illustrative technical report that will allow the site to make sound business decisions.


As an example:


Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) can reduce the OPEX costs and improve EBITDA margins of cement facilities by around 10 to 15 percent. As a general rule, electric power expenditures account for up to 25 percent of total OPEX costs of a cement facility. WHR technology utilizes residual heat in the exhaust gases generated in the cement manufacturing process and can provide a range of energy saving techniques with a range from low-temperature heating or generate up to 30 percent of overall plant electricity needs. WHR-based electric power generating offers plant several advantages:

· Reduces purchased power consumption (or reduces reliance on fossil-fuel-based captive power plants)

· Mitigates the impact of future electric price increases

· Enhances plant power reliability

· Improves plant competitive position in the market
