Cement with PozzolanaCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Blended Cement Alternatives|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Thermal energy use decreases by 0 - 600 MJ/t cement; electricity use decreases by 0 - 25 KWh/t cement.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
The process-related emission reduction in the range of 0.52 tonne CO2 per every tonne of clinker replaced by pozzolana is possible.
Investment cost for retrofit is estimated to be € 8 to 12 millions. Capital costs are due to extra storage capacity for the pozzolana and the cements as well as the technical equipment for handling and drying of the pozzolana.
