Improved Burnability Using MineralizersCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Clinker Making|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Based on the modelling results, thermal energy consumption can be reduced by between 0.05 to 018 GJ/t clinker.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
CO2 emissions can be reduced by 4 to 16 kg per ton of clinker
Additional costs of mineralizers has to be considered and may outweigh the fuel cost savings. Espeically CaF2, which is commonly used, is an expensive material. Use mineral wastes containing flourides can be economically viable, however, such materials have a limited availability.

The report represents the independent research efforts of the European Cement Research Academy (ECRA) to identify, describe and evaluate technologies which may contribute to increase energy efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from global cement production today as well as in the medium and long-term future.
