Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) can be used at cement plants to substitute fossil fuels. In most cases, this also offers a better waste management alternative as the temperatures and retention times in the cement kiln are high enough to eliminate problems, such as those related to dioxins and furans.
Khwa, in cement manufacturing as a major fuel and its impacts on the raw mix and clinker parameters has been discussed. The maximum amount of coal for pulverizing with raw mix was found to be 10%`of the raw mix as calculated from the calorific value and the heat of clinkerization ... cement plant is 840-850 kcal /kg, which is almost
Around 80,000 tonnes of waste-derived fuel per year is to be used to power two kilns at the “largest” cement plant in the UK. The Hope Works cement plant in Derbyshire will take in solid recovered fuel (SRF) from Lincolnshire-based waste firm Mid UK Recycling Ltd as well as councils in the surrounding area.
