Global demand for cement continues to increase and analysts project that the industry will maintain a healthy growth rate well into 2020. This positive outlook translates into mounting pressures on the manufacturers to increase throughput of new and existing plants while at the same time striving to reduce the environmental impact of cement manufacture though process optimization and use of clinker substitutes.

This presentation reviews the importance of elemental and mineralogical analysis and the value of precise analytical data to plant operations. It also discusses the importance of cement fineness and how precision and timeliness aspects of particle size analysis are related to production control and efforts to optimize grinding and reduce energy consumption.
