aixergee was founded in 2009 by Dr.-Ing. Martin Weng and Dipl.-Ing. Matthias Mersmann.

Matthias Mersmann has worked for 20 years on the optimisation for machines and processes in the cement industry. Before founding aixergee he has headed the departments for process engineering, design and automation with KHD Humboldt Wedag where he was also responsible for research & development.

Martin Weng has founded the engineering company aixprocess as a spin-off from the RWTH Aachen (Technical University Aachen) in 2001. aixprocess has developed a lot of engineering and simulation tools, many of them being focused on the specifics of the respective industries – predominantly the cement industry, such as e.g. for the computation of secondary fuels, clinker reactions and (cyclone) separation processes. 2008, aixprocess GmbH was established as a specific company for Basic and Detail Engineering of process equipment.

The lesson learned from many optimisation projects is that neither experience nor sophisticated yet unspecific CFD-knowledge alone lead to success. The complex cement production processes of today require the joint approach of industry-related experience and science-oriented methods to achieve further improvement .
