High-Efficiency Separators and ClassifiersCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Raw Material Preparation|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Case studies have shown that the specific electricity use in material preparation can be reduced by 2.8-3.7 kWh/t-raw material.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
For Chinese context, reductions are estimated to be 2.2 to 2.9 kg-CO2/t-raw material (assuming 0.79 kg CO2/kWh electricity)
Investments are estimated to be US $5.5/t annual raw material processed.
For India investment costs are reported to be $10 - 20 million (or $25 000 to $30 000 per t/h capacity) depending upon the type & size.
