Lyon-based Chovet has been designing and building cement, lime, and various mineral treatment plants for over 50 years, collaborating with partners ranging from Lafarge, Holcim, Heidelberg, Vicat, Cem’In’Eu, Al Safwa, to the Ministry of Economy and Finance in Benin, on industrial engineering projects across the globe.

The team draws on its engineering and operational expertise to offer tailored guidance on technical challenges including procurement and investment decision support, as well as design and engineering for small and mid-size developments.

Chovet’s work also encompasses sustainability projects, in particular providing feasibility studies to restore, expand, and rebuild on brownfield plants with minimal disruption. Additionally, its in-house specialists and partners offer guidance on major sustainability challenges, including the energy transition and decarbonisation of the industry, specifically advising on alternative fuels, flue gas and waste treatment.

“Chovet’s wide ranging expertise will be valuable to WCA’s members as they continue their journey to decarbonise both effectively and economically. I look forward to hearing their experience on LC3 at the upcoming member forum on this topic. The CHOVET team’s input based on project experience will be helpful to our members. I also look forward to seeing the Chovet team at our annual conference later this year,” says WCA CEO Ian Riley.

Chovet president Georges Sontag commented: “We’re very pleased to be joining WCA and look forward to sharing our experiences and insights, to help enhance technical and economical efficiency within organisations, as well as learning from other industry stakeholders across WCA’s network."
