Arabian Cement commissions alternative fuel equipment

Arabian Cement, in Egypt, has commissioned the latest addition to its alternative fuel processing machinery at its Hot Disc plant located in the Suez governorate.

This equipment allows Arabian Cement’s plant to rely completely on coal and alternative fuel to run its operations, the company said in a press statement. It also enables the plant to operate its kilns using alternative fuel materials directly without the need to pre-treat them, it added.

“Use of alternative fuel is expected to result in reducing emissions by approximately 60,000 tons of CO2 per year on average,” the company said in the statement.

Arabian Cement depends on a designed fuel mix of 70 percent coal and 30 percent alternative fuels, which comprises a mixture of agricultural wastes, municipal sludge, and RDF, according to the statement.

Arabian Cement was established in 1997 and is operating under “Al Mussallah” brand. The company produces 5 million tons of first quality cement, roughly 10 percent of Egypt’s cement production.
