South Ferriby Kiln 2 to start production in November
20 September 2018

Cemex plans to start up its second kiln at the South Ferriby plant in north Lincolnshire, UK, in November 2018.

Initially installed in 1973, the kiln has a capacity of 1000tpd and has seen significant investment over the year to ensure compliance with environmental legislation. A recent modernisation programme has seen the renewal of electrical infrastructure, control system and instrumentation.

The kiln was the first to achieve 100 per cent substitution of fossil fuels with alternative fuels, which it will continue to use as part of the company's sustainability drive.

Cement production at the 0.7Mta South Ferriby plant takes place in two kiln lines and the plant is one of three facilities in the UK operated by Cemex UK. The largest plant is located at Rugby, Warwickshire. At Tilbury, the company runs a grinding unit and import terminal.
