Improved Grinding Media for Ball MillsCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Finish Grinding|
|Energy Savings Potential||
This practice can reduce the grinding energy use by 5-10% in some mills, which is equivalent to estimated savings of 3-5 kWh/t cement.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
CO2 emissions can be reduced by 0.7 - 1.2 kg/t-cement with this technology.
Payback times of eight years are estimated, based solely on energy savings.
Improved Grinding Media for Ball Mills 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.
