Energy efficiency in the German cement industry against the background of more stringent energy policy targets and rising energy costs – Part 2

Increasingly stringent political demands are being imposed on the energy productivity of the industry. In a plant-specific investigation, the savings potential for electrical energy, fuels and CO2 emissions of the German cement industry in the period 2013 to 2035 was studied within an economic framework. Part 2 contains the analyses and evaluations.

Part 1 was published in the third issue of ZKG International 2015 and contains the applied method and initial calculations. In part 2, the sensitivity analysis and the conclusion is presented. This section gives am introductory summary of part 1.

In the introduction, we outlined different policies which set direct and indirect goals for a reduced industrial energy consumption in Europe and Germany. The energy saving potentials are calculated in a bottom-up approach by implementing the investigated energy saving measures at each German cement plant, where possible, individually. The energy...
