Additional Preheater Cyclone StagesCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Clinker Making|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Moving from 4 stage to 5 stage, or from 5 stage to 6 stage can reduce the specific heat energy consumption between 0.08 to 0.1 GJ/t clinker
In India reductions between 0.06 to 0.1 GJ/t clinker are reported.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
CO2 emissions can be reduced by 7.6 – 9.5 kg/t-clinker.
CO2 emissions can be reduced by 7.9 – 9.9 kg/t-clinker.
