Focused research & development
Research and development is an integrated part of our research and product review where key activities include science and engineering based research and the continuous evaluation of new technologies and concepts. Our efforts are focused on the research and development of technical solutions with high reliability and availability with a minimum environmental impact and the lowest possible lifecycle costs.

Read about our products
FLSmidth has an established record of product and technology innovation, which has pioneered the cement industry for more than a century. FLSmidth constantly pursues innovation to meet the global challenges our customers face. Besides CO2 emissions, some of the long-term environmental challenges facing the cement industry are energy efficiency, water consumption and hazardous dust emissions.
A spin-off benefit from operating customers’ plants is that it enables us to shorten the ‘innovative loop’. As a plant operator, FLSmidth obtains on-site, real-time experience of, for example, product or process inefficiencies or improvement potential which can be fed straight back into our innovation centres.
