"We fully support the work that the Institute of Quarrying does throughout the world and are delighted to be involved at such an early stage with the Middle East branch" explains CDE Marketing Manager, Peter Craven. "We have no doubt that the Institute will be a great success in the Middle East and we will continue to do all we can to assist with its development."
The Middle East branch of the Institute of Quarrying held its first meeting in October 2009 where over twenty five companies and organisations were represented at the Siji Hotel in Fujairah. In addition to a large number of people from throughout the industry in UAE the event also attracted visitors from Oman and Qatar.
The Institute of Quarrying is a long established body with a proven record for bringing together industry professionals to discuss the important issues of the day and seek out solutions that will allow the industry to continue to develop. The global reach of the institute is testament to this with the Middle East branch adding further coverage to an organisation with existing branches in Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and South Africa.
CDE will tackle the important issue of water availability in the Middle East during their presentation and will highlight the various steps that can be taken by operators to ensure a resource efficient washing plant. CDE Global has been established in the Middle East market for five years now and currently has two offices. The company's regional headquarters is located in Doha with a further branch office in Dubai.
The development of water efficient washing systems for the Middle East is an area where CDE have considerable experience having delivered two 1200 ton per hour sand washing plants in Qatar. These two plants include full, closed circuit water recycling systems ensuring that more than 95% of the water used in the washing process is recycled, which has a huge impact on the volume of water required to feed the washing plants.
"Without the introduction of our AquaCycle thickeners and GHT filter press systems the two plants in Qatar are simply non-starters" explains Steve Williams, CDE Sales Manager for the region. "We will be highlighting these projects and also presenting extensive information on how the same methodologies can be applied to smaller scale operations to allow for the production of the highest quality materials while minimising water consumption."
Since the completion of these two major washing plants in Qatar, CDE have made significant developments to their product range to cope with the specific requirements of the market in the Middle East and these will also be covered extensively at the Institute of Quarrying event in Fujairah.
"Adapting our range to the unique requirements of the Middle East market has been central to the success we have enjoyed" says Steve. "The region has some unique characteristics within the mineral processing sector, largely dominated by water issues and our ability to tailor our offer to overcome this potential obstacle puts us in a position to offer operators the most efficient wet or dry processing systems available."
