Optimizing Fuel PropertiesCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Fuel Preparation|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Identical kiln systems fired by lignite and hard coal show a difference of around 0.1 GJ/t clinker. Reductions in the range of 0.3 GJ/t clinker are reported by using finely ground coal instead of coarse fuel.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential||
If results similar to those in Europe are achieved, between 9 and 28 kg of CO2 can be reduced for every ton of clinker produced.
Costs of different fuels and necessary processing involved in preparation has to be taken into consideration.

Reference Document on Best Available Techniques in the Cement, Lime and Magnesium Oxide Manufacturing Industries
This is a reference document for Best Available Technologies available for Cement, Lime and Magnesium Oxide manufacturing industries and that have high relevance within the scope of the European Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) Directive (now titled as Industrial Emissions Directive following the 2010 recast).
Optimizing Fuel Properties Publications
This Cement technologies booklet was compiled by the APP Cement Task Force (CTF) through one of its activities to help its member countries share information on all available energy efficient technologies generally used in the world’s cement industry. The document offers a comprehensive compilation of commercially-available energy efficient technologies used in the cement industry.
