Eco-efficiency in Processes

Grupo Wheaton Brasil adopted a strategy to control its processes, rather than to control its emissions, creating in this manner a cleaner production process. Therefore, it invested in the modification of its processes and equipment, such as:

  • change of the architecture of its kilns, thereby making them more energy-efficient;
  • implantation of low NOx burners;
  • moving to natural gas fuel;
  • automation of the entire kiln operational control system;
  • and dampening of raw materials prior to placement in the kiln.
