The DigiEcoQuarry (https://digiecoquarry.eu) team visited the Valdilecha quarry, just a 20-minute drive from Madrid’s city center where Asociación Nacional de Empresarios Fabricantes de Áridos – ANEFA ’s headquarters, the leader of the project, are located.
During the visit, we interviewed some of the members of the team so you can get deeper into the project and their tasks. One of them was César Fernández, Performance Manager at Heidelberg Materials. He is in charge, among other tasks, of the development and implementation of performance improvement processes aimed at continuous improvement of the operational, commercial, and financial performance of aggregates and ready-mix businesses.
