Dry outlook

Castle Cement is taking more than one route to greater efficiency. Apart from its increasing use of alternative fuels, the company is in the process of mothballing all its wet process kilns and switching 100% to the much more energy efficient dry process of cement manufacture.

At its Padeswood works some 55M will be spent on modernisation, including a new five-stage pre-heater tower and an upgraded dry kiln. By 2001 three types of alternative fuel - Cemfuel, old tyres, and paper and plastic waste - could be in use at Padeswood.
