Green Cement Revolution: Moran Iron Works Fabricates Granulation Basins for SMS group’s Low-Carbon Cement Production

Moran Iron Works (MIW), a fabrication facility specializing in custom design and engineering solutions, has announced the award of a contract with SMS group for the fabrication of two granulation basins. These basins are essential components in the process by SMS group where blast furnace slag is granulated to produce a superior-quality, low carbon emission replacement for traditional Portland-style cement. The basins are high in value and quality, offering a green technology solution for reducing carbon footprint in the cement industry.

The project began in January 2024 and the granulation basins, each weighing 164,000 pounds and standing 59 feet high and 21 feet in diameter, will be transported via the High-Wire Corridor to Port Calcite in Rogers City, where they will be loaded onto a barge for shipment to their final destination on the Great Lakes. This new technology provides a sustainable solution for the cement industry, offering a high-quality and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional cement production methods. By utilizing these granulation basins, the industry can significantly reduce its carbon emissions and contribute to a cleaner environment.

Moran Iron Works (MIW) is proud to be a part of this innovative project with SMS group. The fabrication of these granulation basins represents a step forward in green technology for the cement industry, providing a more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution for cement production. With this new technology, MIW continues to lead the way towards more sustainable manufacturing practices that benefit both our planet and our economy.
