New CSI-IEA cement technology roadmap offers strategy for 24% cut in CO2 emissions

06 April 2018, Published under Cement News

The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI) and International Energy Agency (IEA) have published a new technology roadmap, Low-Carbon Transition in the Cement Industry, to update the first global cement roadmap produced in 2009. The roadmap provides a combination of technology and policy solutions to reducing direct carbon emissions by the cement industry by 24 per cent below current levels by 2050. It outlines policy priorities and regulatory recommendations as well as investment stimulat...

Maximising AF usage

25 February 2014, Published under Cement News

While the use of alternative fuels (AF) continues to increase, the desired targets always pose challenges as the price and properties of waste-derived fuels vary. Therefore, a better understanding of AF utilisation is essential to mitigate any potential negative effects on kiln stability, product quality and emissions. The case study detailed below highlights the effectiveness of using MI-CFD as an engineering tool to reduce CO emissions when AF is co-fired with coal at the kiln front-end. B...
