Syria - Energy efficiency improvement in the cement sector : Main report (English)

This report evaluates the Syria cement industry. It includes measures to conserve the use of energy and to substitute less costly fuels, particularly natural gas. It presents an overview of the cement industry and evaluates the economic and financial feasibility of measures recommended by the consulting firm Holderbank Management and Consulting Ltd. to improve its performance and make it viable. Two points should be noted about the report. First, the Syrian cement industry was studied by selecting three of the seven Syrian cement companies, Tartous, Arabian and Adra, and visiting their plants. Second, the focus was on identifying production constraints and energy consumption patterns, and defining improvements to the areas of the cement production process that consume large amounts of thermal energy and electric power for the three plants studied. The consultants' report recommends specific measures to achieve the identified energy efficiency improvements on three levels: (a) by operational improvements; (b) by modifications requiring small investments; and (c) by long-term investments.
