(57) A method of treating cement kiln fuel includes introducing an additive to a fuel component to form a fuel mixture. The fuel component includes a sulfur-generating combustible fuel and the additive includes a micronized lime component. The method further includes combusting the fuel component within a cement kiln. The sulfur generated by the combustion of the combustible fuel forms calcium-containing sulfur compounds with lime provided by the micronized lime component. The calcium-containing sulfur compounds fall to a bed of clinker forming beneath the flame and some portion thereof may become resident in the clinker.
