Alternative Fuels in Cement Manufacturing | IntechOpen

Cement producers worldwide are striving to lower their production costs. One effective method of achieving this end is the use of alternative fuels. Use of low-grade alternative fuels such as waste coal, tyres, sewage sludge, and biomass fuels (such as wood products, agricultural wastes, etc.) in precalciners is a viable option because

Tyres as an alternative fuel - Cem

The use of alternative fuels and raw material is common practice in the European cement industry. Dirk Lechtenberg gives an overview of scrap tyres as an alternative fuel in this excerpt from MVW Lechtenberg & Partner's Alternative Fuels & Raw Materials Handbook. Due to be published in the summer of 2011, the handbook will give an insight into over 80 different types of alternative fuels

Unlocking Value : Alternative Fuels for Egypt's

The successful use of alternative fuels for the cement industry brings with it potentially significant public and private benefits. The use of Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials (AFR) can reduce landfilling, lower carbon emissions by substituting the use of coal, reduce public costs for waste management, and potentially transform waste from a public nuisance into a privatizedand lucrative

Italy: The Italian cement industry decreased its overall CO2 emissions by 8.9% in 2018 compared to 2017, in part by replacing a higher proportion of fossil fuels with alternative fuels and biomass fuels. The proportion of alternative fuels used increased to 19.7% in 2018 compared to 17.3% in 2019, according to Federbeton. This translates to 387

Impact of alternative fuels - International

If the fuels used for firing the kiln are the highest variable cost then reducing those costs must be the first priority of cost minimisation. If the traditional fossil fuel used for firing the kiln can be partially replaced by a lower-cost alternative then the profit margin from the production of clinker and cement must increase.

Cement kiln - Wikipedia

Cement kilns are used for the pyroprocessing stage of manufacture of Portland and other types of hydraulic cement, in which calcium carbonate reacts with silica-bearing minerals to form a mixture of calcium silicates.Over a billion tonnes of cement are made per year, and cement kilns are the heart of this production process: their capacity usually defines the capacity of the cement plant.
