Gravity Type Blending SilosCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Raw Material Preparation|
|Energy Savings Potential||
1.0 to 2.5 kWh of electricity can be saved for each ton of raw meal processed.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
In China, for every ton of raw material processsed, 0.8 to 2.5 kg of CO2 can be saved with this technology
For every ton of raw material processsed, 0.8 to 2 kg CO2 can be saved in India.
Retrofitig costs are estimated to be US $3.7/t-raw material (assuming US$550 thousand per silo and an average capacity of 150,000 tonnes annual production).
In India, retrofiting costs are reported to be around $35 per ton of silo capacity
Gravity Type Blending Silos Publications
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) energy guide, Energy Efficiency Improvement and Cost Saving Opportunities for Cement Making, discusses energy efficiency practices and technologies that can be implemented in cement manufacturing plants. This ENERGY STAR guide provides current real world examples of cement plants saving energy and reducing cost and carbon dioxide emissions.
