Use of Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials in the European Cement Industry


Objective:
An overview of the current situation regarding the use of alternative fuels and raw materials in the European cement industry.
Target Group:
Experienced process engineers and waste managers
Description:
The use of alternative materials remains an ongoing issue  for the European cement industry. Starting with the main political drivers such as the circular economy strategy or the European plastics strategy, the seminar will give a comprehensive overview of the current situation with regard to the use of alternative fuels and raw materials in the EU. In this context, sophisticated pre-treatment and also suitable quality surveillance for alternative materials play a decisive role. Moreover, other drivers and barriers currently exist which could promote or constrain the use of alternative materials. The impact of using alternative fuels and raw materials on specific CO2 emissions of a cement kiln will also be discussed, together with health and safety issues in the context of using alternative materials, which are of growing importance. Political aspects and technical feasibilities will also be presented. The seminar includes a visit to the Secil Outao plant in Setúbal, Portugal.
