We welcomed the third quarter of 2016 with the award of many Studies for new and current clients in the cement industry. Some of the solutions we are providing our clients in the United States are related to issues they have with new environmental regulations, logistics of distribution terminals, fly ash and raw material storages, structural evaluation of silos, spray cooling of process gases, etc.

We were also entrusted with studies in Central and South America, and in the Middle East. We provided valuations for two cement plants and one lime plant in Central America; visited China to conduct the shop inspection of kiln supports and shell for a preheater rotary lime kiln being fabricated in that country for one of our clients in South America; prepared a CapEx Study for a new cement plant facility at the location of an already established quarry; and process studies for a plant in Qatar, which are still underway.
