(57) A method for manufacturing clinker including the steps of sintering raw meal in a kiln to clinker, preheating the raw meal in a preheater using a main flue gas stream from the kiln as a heat source, dedusting the main flue gas downstream from the preheater at a temperature below the boiling point of mercury, thereby obtaining mercury-loaded dust and withdrawing a bypass flue gas stream from the kiln. Implementation of the method results in efficient removal of the mercury from the process if mercury in the bypass flue gas is evaporated by injecting at least a fraction of the mercury-loaded dust into the bypass flue gas stream. Subsequently, the bypass flue gas is dedusted and cooled down. The mercury can be adsorbed by injecting an adsorbent like activated charcoal into the bypass flue gas. With the subsequent removal of the adsorbent, mercury is finally removed from the process.
