This is to enable the company improve its energy efficiency through demand side energy management, by reusing the heat it expunges (Waste Heat Recovery(WHR)) while making cement.

Its also looking at exploring other options to meet the shortfall in energy it might get through WHR via a coal plant, solar, gasification plant etc.

This is the ideal way to go for the more than 6 cement factories in region, and the ones planned for development. Demand Side Energy Management has been around for a while and its good to see a Kenyan company taking action.
