Cement is a binder, a chemical used in construction that binds things together by setting, hardening, and adhering to them. In most cases, sand and gravel are combined with cement rather than being utilised on their own.
Mortar for masonry is made from cement mixed with fine aggregate, and concrete is made from cement combined with sand and gravel.
The second most utilised resource on the globe after water is concrete, which is the most often used substance in existence. According to their unique setting and hardening methods, non-hydraulic cements and hydraulic cements are two distinct groups of cement materials.
While non-hydraulic cements simply react with a gas and can set under air, hydraulic cement setting and hardening incorporates hydration reactions and as a result needs water.
The Saudi Arabia Cement Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
White cement is becoming more and more in demand across the globe. Demand is being driven by rising construction activities, particularly in emerging markets.
Since of its reflective qualities, white cement is particularly desired in nations with generally hot climates because it tends to keep structures cooler.
Additionally, white cement is frequently employed in the construction of cutting-edge structures and significant monuments as a high-quality, value-added product. Alsafwa Cement Company, situated in Saudi Arabia, is one such manufacturer and has just given FLSmidth a contract to upgrade one of its grey cement kiln lines.
A dual white and grey cement production plant will need to be created, which will need the cost-effective modification of existing equipment.
FLSmidth has carried out several comparable grey-to-white conversions in recent years, including for the Riyadh Cement Company in Saudi Arabia, and adds a wealth of experience and expertise to this project.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that many cement manufacturers believe the moment is ripe to expand the amount of white cement they can make.
