Alternative fuels in the cement industry

In the following, concepts are introduced based on the mechanical, physical and thermal processing of substitute fuels. With increasing international cost pressures not only the applications of alternative raw materials and fuels are substituted but increasingly also substitute fuels are interchanged by more reasonable offers. However, in order to be able to further increase the applications product and emission neutral, substitute fuel production and pre-engineering must be optimally co-ordinated. Among other things this leads to a retrofitting of the cement rotary kilns with appropriate...
