The 14th REFRA-Kolloquium attracting 660 guest from 75 countries was held from June 1-3, 2016 in the Estrel Convention Center Berlin. Under the motto “Energy – Innovation – Performance”, 21 international lecturers provided an overview of the global market situation as well as of its perspectives. Papers presented on successfully realized major projects as well as on technical innovations in refractories and process engineering were perfectly combined with the practical demonstration of the mobile “REFRA-Training on site”. A panel discussion with 8 participants from 4 different countries provided a better understanding of the various influences exerted by different refractory strategies on the efficiency of clinker production.
During these two days, Refratechnik Cement underscored once again its leadership in technology by presenting the new ES and CF shaped product series as well as the ED refractory concrete series which impressively evidenced their high performance capability in numerous applications. But not only the new products met with lively interest. As global system provider with its own experts from all fields of clinker production and with the valuable support of competent, independent partners, such as the German Cement Works Association (VDZ) with its Research Institute, Refratechnik Cement consolidated its position as global interlocutor for any issues related to consultancy and engineering, implementation and installation as well as training courses on all relevant topics.
