Fives next-generation burner will allow best clinker quality and lowest emissions for Sococim Industries’ new clinker line

Fives' double expertise in combustion and cement will be key to help Sococim Industries (a subsidiary of the French cement group Vicat) reach their goal to increase the performance of their new cement plant line in Senegal while limiting its environmental footprint.

Sococim, a long-standing customer of Fives, have three main goals to improve the kiln performance of its new cement plant line in Senegal:

  • Use a large panel of fuels as well as alternative solid fuels (ie biomass) and alternative liquid fuels (ie. used oil) 
  • Reduce the emissions of flux gases at the chimney and thus NOx emissions
  • Have a clinker of proper quality, an essential component of cement production

To meet these objectives, Fives will supply its next-generation and market favorite kiln burner, the Pillard NOVAFLAM® Evolution.

The Pillard NOVAFLAM® Evolution has been designed with a full range of innovations offering unparalleled performance regarding clinker quality, ASF substitution rate and reduction of NOx emissions.

For this project, the Pillard NOVAFLAM® Evolution will enable Sococim to substitute up to 40% of fuels with alternative solid and liquid fuels at the kiln inlet. It will also optimize the quality of the clinker, thus lowering its proportion in cement production and overall, NOx emissions from the cement production.

Aside from the Pillard NOVAFLAM® Evolution burner, Fives will also provide the fuel network which includes pumps, valves skids, etc.
