Cement production consumes substantial amounts of both raw materials and energy, in the form of thermal and electric energy. Systematic monitoring and recording of consumed quantities is required to ensure that environmental impact, if any, is adequately appraised. The TITAN Group attaches a high priority to applying and improving its monitoring mechanisms. Additionally, TITAN is working on increasing the efficiency of its plants, optimizing the operation of the existing equipment as well as taking advantage of new, state-of-the art equipment. The aim of these efforts is an overall reduction in consumption.
In 2011, additional efforts to reduce indirect energy consumption were launched by TITAN regarding business related traveling and initiatives motivating employees to commute with public transportation instead of private cars. Measurable outcomes of these efforts will be available in 2012.
