Germany-based companies GMK GmbH and IKN GmbH have entered into an exclusive partnership to develop and market waste heat recovery systems for the cement industry.

On 16 September 2013, a memorandum of understanding was signed by Piacentini-Timm (GMK), Wilhelm Uebachs (GERMANIA Technologieholding), Klaas Windmöller and Justus von Wedel (both IKN).

GMK, a specialist for power generating equipment based on the Organic-Rankine-Cycle (ORC), has developed the INDUCAL® line of products for industrial  applications.

IKN is a specialist for pyro-related solutions for the cement industry and is mostly recognised for its Pendulum Cooler®.

IKN and GMK are joining forces to adapt the ORC process for an efficient integration into waste heat cycles at cement kilns and clinker coolers.
