Driven by a new major sustainability program, a model predictive control solution from Rockwell Automation (NYSE:ROK) is helping a leading global cement producer spearhead process digitalization efforts.

Compagnie des Ciments Belges SA (CCB), part of Cementir Holding group - a multinational building solutions company and global leader in white cement - is examining its processes with the goal of becoming more sustainable. It has formulated an ambitious roadmap to significantly reduce CO2 emissions by 2030. The Group's 10-year roadmap includes the replacement of fossil fuels, the development of a new low-carbon cement, and several investments in sustainable development, coupled with the digitalization of manufacturing, maintenance, inventory, and spare-parts management processes in all its factories.

At two cement mills over two months, the Rockwell-installed solution helped reduce energy consumption by 6%, compared to a target of 3%, and it increased production rates by nearly 8.5%, compared to a 3% target.
