Crash Course on Cement Production and Use

Our training schemes introduce career starters to cement technology, taking their different engineering or scientific backgrounds into account. This course provides a one-week in-depth training session which covers all relevant aspects of the cement manufacturing process including chemistry, mineralogy and environmental aspects. Quality control and cement performance in mortar/concrete will also be addressed.

Firing Alternative Fuels 2025

This course covers all the relevant aspects concerning the use of alternative fuels in cement plants. Starting with the main political drivers such as the circular economy and the European waste fuel strategy, the training will give a detailed view of the current state-of-the-art-situation with regard to the use of alternative fuels in the EU. In this context, pre-treatment and suitable quality control of alternative fuels will be also explained and presented. A main focus will be given to the drivers and barriers of the use of alternative fuels within the burning process. Key issues will be explained and discussed with the participants. Finally, technical feasibilities, case studies and optimisation potential will be part of the training course.

Burning Technology in Cement Production

Clinker production is the most energy-intensive process step in cement manufacturing. It can represent up to 90 % of the total energy demand in a cement plant and is therefore a main focus not only with regard to cost optimisation and quality improvement of the final product, but also regarding emission control and the reduction of impacts on the environment. VDZ’s training will enable participants to obtain a deeper knowledge of the clinker production process and a better understanding of the impacts that daily decisions of plant personnel can make on the plant’s performance (quality, electrical energy use, fuel consumption and emissions).

Grinding Technology in Cement Production

Raw material preparation and cement grinding are the first and the last major process steps during cement production. The energy demand of these two processes amounts to up to 70 % of the electrical energy used in a cement plant. This training will enable participants to obtain a better understanding of the comminution processes as well as the equipment used for material grinding to ensure high levels of availability. This altogether will allow an optimisation of production rates and reducing energy consumption.

Cements of the Future

With the decarbonisation of cement production and the expected reduction in blastfurnace slag and fly ash quantities, unburned limestone, calcined clays, and recycled fines will gain in importance as cement main constituents. The focus will be on new, clinker-effcient cement types such as CEM II/C and CEM VI cements, whose performance allows a wide range of applications in practice. This online seminar provides an overview of the current state of development and standardisation of new cements. The possibilities and limits for practical implementation will be presented.

Energy Balances and Efficiency

This training will provide knowledge of how to conduct and evaluate cement kiln and mill trials. Kiln and mill examinations are carried out in order to gather data on the performance and to validate warranty performance data such as the output, the energy consumption, input/output ratio or the efficiency. They also provide a reliable foundation for the optimisation of individual operational system components, the cement quality, the reduction of emissions levels and for assessment of material cycles and coating formations.
