Pre Feasibility and Feasibility Studies   for Greenfield Cement Plants and Plant Expansions

We take into consideration the technical and financial phases of a project for the preparation of a Feasibility Study. An estimate is made of all equipment, systems and energy requirements, a financial analysis is then prepared, including operating and capital costs. A Feasibility Study also gives detailed site logistics and transport requirements.

Conversion to Alternative Fuels/Co-processing Studies

 Using Alternative Fuels benefits the economy of operation by lowering the cost of fuels. There are also environmental benefits to the implementation of Alternative Fuels. We evaluate the characteristics of co-processing and recommend ways to securely and effectively handle / utilize fuels in the pyroprocess.    

 Cement Plant Efficiency Studies / Technical Audits

  We carry out plant efficiency studies, technical audits, bottleneck analysis, trouble shooting and capacity upgrades. A Cement Plant Efficiency Study improves a plant’s competitive edge by helping to achieve better fuel economy and run factors

  

Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) / Co-generation Plants

      We provide an assessment of the power potential, a financial analysis with capital and operating cost estimates, and an economic analysis to assess the viability of the WHR project.

Mineral Exploration and Reserves Evaluation  

PEC Consulting assesses potential mineral resources and estimates / characterizes reserves of raw materials for the manufacturing of cement. Skilled mineral exploration is the key to locating and mining appropriate deposits.
