CEMEX and Synhelion Achieve Breakthrough in Cement Production with Solar Energy.
CEMEX, S.A.B. de C.V. (“CEMEX”) and Synhelion announced the successful production of the world’s first solar clinker, the key component of cement, a significant step towards developing fully solar-driven cement plants.

R&D teams set up a pilot batch production unit to produce clinker from concentrated solar radiation by connecting the clinker production process with the Synhelion solar receiver. The pilot was installed at the Very High Concentration Solar Tower of IMDEA Energy, located in Spain. Synhelion’s solar receiver delivers record-breaking temperatures reaching beyond 1,500°C. The solar receiver heats a gaseous heat transfer fluid and thus provides the necessary process heat for clinker production.
