It is a win for LOESCHE with the order of five large vertical roller mills on the Algerian cement market
Advanced mill technology for the grinding of cement raw meal and cement clinker for use in high-grade building materials.
LOESCHE has been able to sell five large vertical roller mills to the emerging cement market in Algeria. The local building sector in Algeria is one of the drivers of increasing cement demand, which now stands at 24.5 million tons per year in this North- African country, and is not being met by the current annual production of around 19.5 million tons. Not least for this reason, several large-scale cement projects have recently been started there: As a result, LOESCHE will now be providing two mills for cement raw meal and three mills for cement clinker to the cement plant of the Algerian producer SARL Biskria Ciment in Biskra – 300 km south-east of the capital, Algiers. With this, the cement raw meal can be ground to a fineness of 12% sieving residue with 90 μm at a processing capacity of 500 t/h and the cement clinker to a fineness of 3,400 Blaine.
