Energy Efficiency and Waste Heat Recovery

To present innovative measures for waste heat recovery techniques combined with CO2 reduction
Target Group:
Plant managers, development process and kiln engineers

Today, the process-related potential to reduce energy consumption is widely exhausted. Plants are usually designed to utilise heat from the burning process to dry raw materials and in many cases coal in integrated grind-drying processes forming an essential part of the production process. However, techniques for further waste heat recovery are becoming increasingly important for an extended use of the fuel energy. Alternative fuels can be dried in drying/grind-drying installations and environmentally-friendly power can be generated by using the available waste heat from cement plants without additional use of fuels and greenhouse gas emissions – provided the process parameters allow this. The seminar will present applicable options and potentials for energy-efficient and CO2-friendly techniques such as waste heat recovery within the cement industry. The assessment of energy efficiency of the burning and grinding processes will also be addressed. The seminar includes a visit to the Holcim (Schweiz) plant in Untervaz, Switzerland.
