Blending Optimization for Cement Industry

Cement companies face challenges in maintaining product quality when their product needs to be blended with third-party additives to achieve a predictable and consistent result. The calculations required to blend the chemical characteristics and mining parameters necessary to extract material from the mine with keeping the cost of third-party raw materials to a minimum, and at the same time maintaining a consistent, quality product are usually a struggle. Frequently those calculations are completed in a spreadsheet or by guesswork resulting in excess additive cost and an increase in product variability.

Lab Digitalization – Delivering Efficiency & Sustainability

The conventional paper-based laboratories are often error-prone, making knowledge transfer even more difficult. However, with the rise of technology and remote work, managing a digital laboratory offers many benefits. The inefficient paper-based processes for recording, managing and executing recipes, processes and methods are being replaced by digital ones. Company data is stored reliably and consistently in a single centralized system, minimizing the risk of human error.

Specialty Chemicals: Growing Share of India in Global Market

Growing domestic demand, higher realisations and better exports are fueling the growth of the Indian specialty chemicals industry. The robust performance of the sector prompted specialty chemical manufacturers to ramp up their production capacity to meet the demand. Estimates suggest that Indian manufacturers had earmarked a capex of around Rs 6000 crores in fiscal 2021-22. While export growth is expected to accelerate to 17 -18%, domestic demand will surge to around 20% due to strong demand from agrochemicals, FMCG, pharmaceutical, textile and other sectors.
