Ecoprep (Economic Preparation) is the sustainable technology for preparing ceramic bodies with a minimum consumption of resources. It has a huge impact on the energy balance and eliminates the need for additives to generate a high-quality slip to make granules. In consequence Ecoprep delivers a significant reduction in production costs, bringing an investment in this technology to the break-even point after a very short time. Reduction in water consumption and additives and the use of new raw materials are other advantages that impulse the implementation of this production technology, as well as important reduction of CO2 emissions, contributing to meeting the goals of the Kyoto Protocol. In short: A technology already successfully applied in different industries for decades, that includes a compendium of measures based on saving reductions in a range from 66% (energy, water,...) and 100% (additives, deflocculants, etc.) and will mark the future in microgranulation processes also in the ceramic industry.
