Operations & Sustainability
Most cement producers understand what might enhance the efficiency of their assets. What is missing sometimes is the ability to compare efficiency gains with Best Practice. Also, in some cases, cement producers may not be totally aware of the best available funding sources and processes.
CBA has worked on several such projects bringing together Best Practice technical expertise, commercial and financial insights and best available funding opportunities. CBA assists its clients in developing compelling investment profiles for plant- level projects and support the client in the whole funding and execution process of such projects.
As Sustainability is now an integral part of a cement business, requires both strategic and operational expertise to be delivered successfully. Both existing or impeding legislation and competitive pressures direct cement businesses – irrespective of their size – to place Sustainability at the top of their corporate agenda. CBA provides extensive expertise in both developing and delivering sustainability driven initiatives which improve profitability and respond to legal requirements.
CBA offers a full range of services including technical, commercial and financial feasibility studies and implementation monitoring for all investment projects at a cement plant – expansions, conversions, alternative fuels, energy efficiency projects among others.
Plant investment is complimented by operational strategy and implementation expertise by senior CBA team members who have managed and restructured significant cement operations including realigning the operational models of the businesses in terms of manpower, marketing and sales, corporate governance among other operational aspects. In addition, CBA is following all new trends and initiatives in industry such as Industry 4.0, examining and exploring the implementation of such initiatives in the cement sector.
