Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation Systems for Cement Production Process

  title={Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation Systems for Cement Production Process},
  author={Ali Amiri and Mohammad Rahim Vaseghi},
  journal={2013 IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Industry Technical Conference},
Cement production process is highly energy intensive with approximately 3-4-GJ energy consumption per ton of cement produced. Moreover, energy costs are responsible for 25% of total production costs, whereas 75% of primary energy usage is thermal energy. However, the process is characterized by a significant amount of heat loss mainly by the flue gases and the air stream used for cooling down the clinker. Waste heat is generated by a fuel combustion process or chemical reactions and then dumped… CONTINUE READING
