On the 29th of August, our Cement Technical Director for North America, Joel Filius, was rewarded on the 2018 Chairman’s Manufacturing Performance Awards. The prize is a recognition of The Portland Cement Association (PCA) for the associate member companies accomplishments in the advancement of cement manufacturing over the previous year.
Presented at the PCA Summer Committee Meetings in Chicago, the awards recognize achievements in three main areas: innovative products, unique processes and best-in-class practices. Joel Filius won second with his presentation for the innovation of using Panels of High MgO refractory systems to control excessive coating formations in Basic and Non-basic refractory systems. This innovation can reduce off-peak production and kiln downtime that normally would be required to eliminate these coating formations.
