What Is The PEGASUS Programme?

WCA's PEGASUS programme, which stands for Plant Evaluation, Gap Analysis and Support Service, is part of our commitment to provide value-added services and support our members to achieve greater sustainability. The programme is offered to corporate members to help them to identify the gap between their plants and world-class best practice, through gap analysis, plant audits and dialogue with experts. 

Gap Analysis: Through benchmarking with other plants around the world, we can identify the gap at a particular plant between actual performance and best practice. We look at the gap to best-in-class (i.e. plants with comparable technology) as well as the gap to industry best practice. The gaps identified can then be used to prioritise performance improvement projects and evaluate capital investment options.

Plant Audits: A plant audit team consists of specialists in the relevant topics to be examined. The teams typically include specialists on pyro systems, milling, waste heat recovery, maintenance and quality. These specialists are drawn from other WCA members. When a plant is audited, it is an opportunity to look at improvement opportunities with from a new perspective, drawing on the experience of the team. It is also an opportunity for professional development for those involved both from the host plant and the audit team.

Dialogue with Experts:  WCA members have access to expertise and opportunities to share experiences and best practices through our network, other PEGASUS participants and specialists from the audit team.

 

PEGASUS 2020:

Each Autumn, a new PEGASUS cycle will begin, allowing new companies and plants to join the project. Each participating company will submit up to date data, allowing comparison and progress assessment versus the previous year.

As part of WCA’s continuing Climate and Environment commitment, as well as providing value-added services for its members, we have formed ongoing Climate Partnerships with organisations such as NGOs, thinktanks and events providers. This will allow knowledge sharing between WCA and our Climate Partner, giving the cement industry a voice and platform outside of its traditional silos, as well as fostering new partnerships, collaborations and ideas between our industry, other hard-to-abate sectors and the wider climate movement.
