Lime Kiln ModificationsCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Chemical Recovery|
|Energy Savings Potential||
One published estimate suggests that newer high-performance refractory use can lead to lime kiln energy savings of up to 5%.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
For these measures, investment cost of about $2.5/t [for the year 2000]pulp has been assumed (Martin et al., 2000. p.27).
