Meet sustainable cement production goals with our full flowsheet offering

The cement production business is demanding. Cement producers today are faced with several key challenges as they aim to balance productivity, sustainability and quality. When considering building a new cement plant, it's not just the initial capital investment that is important. You need to consider the total cost of ownership over the full lifecycle of your cement plant.


As a total supplier of engineering, equipment and service solutions to the cement production industry, FLSmidth understands the full cement production flowsheet. Offering a unique combination of projects, products and services, we assist you at every step on the journey towards sustainable cement production – from plant design and financing to building, commissioning and operating the most productive and efficient plants in the industry.

Strong financial performance


Our focus on productivity across the lifespan of the plant results in direct bottom-line impact. With FLSmidth as your partner, you can achieve a higher return on investment, faster payback and stable cash flow. Choosing the right equipment and service agreements has a significant impact on your plant’s commercial performance.

World-class sustainability


Sustainability is core to our business model, guiding our strategy today and tomorrow. To us, sustainability involves optimising all aspects of cement production that impact the environment. This includes the consumption of water, fuel and energy as well as particulate and gaseous emissions.

We have an unrelenting focus on excellence in safety. In our own organisation, our ambition is to achieve zero accidents. Everyone at FLSmidth participates in extensive safety training. We transfer this approach to all of our cement plant projects, helping you to apply the highest levels of safety to your operations.


We also aim to leave a positive mark on the local environment and society. This means more than just creating jobs. Our experience shows that the best performing plants are often those with a local workforce. We have comprehensive programmes for training local employees.
