11th International Conference on AAC Production and Application in Minsk


The growth potential for standard AAC masonry blocks is increasingly reaching its level of saturation on the Russian, Belarus, and Ukrainian markets. Accordingly, there exists a lot of competitive pressure on manufacturers. Taking this into consideration, it is optimization and an increase in efficiency in terms of production processes that are gaining importance just the same as the need for enlarging one’s range of products by, for instance, AAC reinforced elements. The organizers of the 11th International Scientific and Industrial Conference on the topic of AAC production and application have therefore drawn up a program of speeches that perfectly corresponds to the information needs of manufacturers as it precisely addresses these issues.

The agenda of this get-together comprises, amongst other things, the modernization of production plant, new control software, fibers and additives, thermal insulation, and energy-eficient buildings.

Apart from speeches, a visit to a production facility will also be forming part of the program in Minsk. This year, the participants are going to visit OAO „Beresovskiy KCI“ in Beresa, about 300 km southwest of Minsk, a facility where plant and equipment technology of Masa-Henke is doing a fine job.

Tremendous support by industrial associations

The chief sponsor of the 3-day event will be machine and equipment manufacturer Masa GmbH. Partners, amongst others, are the national AAC associations of Russia and Ukraine and the Russian Lightweight Concrete Association.

The conference is supported by the Ministry of Architecture and Construction of the Republic of Belarus; the Association of Construction Entrepreneurs; the Institutes of Residential Construction, NIPTIS im. Atayeva S. S., NIISM and BelNIIS; and TNKA-Arkhitek, Institute of Planning and Development.

Even though Belarus is not as badly affected by the crisis caused by the coronavirus as many Western European countries, the organizational committee of the conference stated in an email to AAC Worldwide that it will monitor the situation and take a final decision in the beginning of April whether to postpone the conference to September.
