Kiln Shell Heat Loss ReductionCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Clinker Making|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Fuel consumption is estimated be reduced by around 0.12 to 0.4 GJ/t of clinker.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
in China, switching to better refractories may reduce CO2 emissions by 11 to 38 kg per ton of clinker.
Switching to higher quality refractories may cost around US $0.25/annual tonne clinker capacity. Estimated payback period is approximately 1 years.
Kiln Shell Heat Loss Reduction 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.
