Preventive MaintenanceCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Cement Plant General|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Reduction of up to 5 kWh/t-clinker through various preventative maintenance and process control measures was reported Typical savings are around 3 kWh/t clinker.
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Start-up and implementation costs of preventive maintenance tend to be very low, often resulting in payback times of less than one year.
Preventive Maintenance 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.
