Advanced technology and economies of scale in the cement industry
thesisposted on 2002-01-01, 00:00 authored by Wilbur Henry. Harvey
The thesis examines sources of economies of scale for the manufacture and distribution of Portland cement. Using cost models, it is shown that recent advances in technology have increased the economies of scale for efficient clinker production significantly, and to a lesser degree for finish grinding operations and bulk distribution.
