Finishing processes


I have a doubt about the finishing processes. In my model I see that in the industry sectors such as ICU, ICM, IAL, IIS, it appears a pair of finishing processes (00 & 01) included.

I have tried to create a new technology as an entire box, e.g. a cement plant, considering an output of cement (ICM). This path obviates the existence of an intermediate finishing process which uses the clinker (MCMCLK) and energy as inputs and creates ICM as output, it means 2 boxes: one for the clinker plant and one for the cement production (Finishing process). Using this one-step path the model dose not run so my doubt is: is it always necessary the existence of a finishing process which mixes the energy chain and the material chain? And, if this is true, why does not it appear any finishing process in the sub-sector ICL, for instance?
