Member Forum: Smart Plant Workshop

Quanjiao CONCH intro


Applying the latest technology in automation and machine learning AI to management of cement plants offer significant benefits in terms of cost, product quality and emissions. AI can be applied to the whole management system of the plant from quarrying to dispatch.

The forum will comprise 2 plant visits, the first to look at Expert Systems and Energy Management at Zanhuang BBMG plant and the second to look at the automation, AI and CCR at Quanjiao Conch Plant.

After the plant visits we will hold a workshop covering:

  • Quanjiao Conch AI experience
  • Best practice and experience sharing on automation and AI at the Tai’An CUCC plant and the Qilianshan CNBM plant
  • Best practice sharing for ‘Smart Lab’
  • Group discussion

Participants will have the chance to present the challenges and ideas in use at their own plants. The forum is designed for plant managers, engineering mangers and automation specialists as well as managers with strategy and digitalization responsibilities.
