Cameroon: Germany-based Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions has won an engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) contract with Netherlands-based Cimpor Global Holdings for the installation of a clay calcination plant at its new integrated Kribi cement plant in the Port of Kribi in South Cameroon. The system calcines clay at just 800°C, which can then replace clinker at a ratio of one to two, lowering the finished cement’s clinker factor by up to 33%.

ThyssenKrupp says that use of the system, the first of its kind in Cameroon and second at a Cimpor Global Holdings cement plant, will help cut CO2 emissions by 120,000t/yr, corresponding to a reduction of 40%.
