For the fourth consecutive year, Alfran participates as a sponsor at the XXXIV Technical Congress of FICEM (Interamerican Cement Federation). On this occasion it was held at the Hotel Intercontinental in Guatemala City, capital of the Central American country of the same name. In the event, there was a stand at the trade fair. In addition, we were represented by Carlos Chavez and Rodolfo Santelli, our colleagues from Refractarios Américas.
We carried out a technical presentation called Decision Factors in the Selection of Non-Formed Refractory Installation Method. Such presentation was given by Rodolfo Santelli.
At the XXXIV Technical Congress of FICEM, it was possible to share with current and potential customers of the cement industry.
Likewise, we were able to strengthen ties and synergies with other suppliers in the industry, such as FLSmidth, ThyssenKrupp, Fives, Motofrenos and others. It was also favorable to know the trends of the global cement market, through the information provided by specialized magazines such as CementReview and others.
The Interamerican Cement Federation brings together manufacturers from all Latin America (Latin America, Spain and Portugal). It brings together 72 cement companies, 228 plants and 5% of the world cement production, which amounts to about 228 million tons / year. In addition to the annual Technical Congress, it also organizes training courses on topics of interest to the cement industry. It also coordinates the efforts in terms of emission reduction and environmental care in the production of cement.
