“The development of the China cement industry is fully recognized in the global cement community. The cement mining in China has made revolutionary achievements. The equipment, technology, and management of our mines are reaching the international advanced levels,” says President Lei Qianzhi when talking about the development of the China cement industry. Cement production mainly consumes energy and resources, for example, coal, electric power, and limestone etc. As the government requires cleaner production and low-carbon economy, there are many things to be done in these cement mines to save the energy and protect the environment. Cement mining and comprehensive utilization of mineral resources will be an important task in the Twelfth Five-Year period. The current issues are how to maximize the comprehensive benefits of mineral resources and do a better job in managing and making comprehensive use of mineral resources.
 
Advanced equipment may help cement manufacturers reduce energy consumption while significantly improving mining productivity. This is also a goal that Atlas Copco has always been pursuing for. In the Forum, a product lines introduction is made by Mr. Jansen Cui, Sales Manager from Atlas Copco Surface Drilling Equipment, and aroused great interest among all delegates.
