Parametric Studies of Cement Production Processes

The cement industry is one of the most intensive energy consumers in the industrial sectors. The energy consumption represents 40% to 60% of production cost. Additionally, the cement industry contributes around 5% to 8% of all man-made CO 2 emissions. Physiochemical and thermochemical reactions involved in cement kilns are still not well understood because of their complexity.

Reducing Environmental Impacts of Cement and Concrete ...

 · Some of the CO 2 released during cement production comes from burning coal and other carbon-intensive fuels as a heat source in kilns that can run non-stop for over a year at a time. But portland cement is unique in that about half of its carbon emissions comes from calcining limestone, which emits CO 2 during the chemical reaction.

Examining the use of Fluorspar in the Cement industry

Its inclusion in the process does not behave the same way in all cement kiln systems, so lab and industrial tests are always needed prior to industrial use. Due to the nature of cement process almost any quality of fluorspar or its sub-products(i.e. HF industry residues) can be used for cement production (as low as 40% of CaF2 content) 20

Emissions from the Cement Industry

 · The production of cement releases greenhouse gas emissions both directly and indirectly: the heating of limestone releases CO 2 directly, while the burning of fossil fuels to heat the kiln indirectly results in CO 2 emissions. The direct emissions of cement occur through a chemical process called calcination.
