Research projects


Completed

Influence of the reduction of melting point and viscosity of the clinker melt by ashes of alternative fuels on sintering reactions and coating formation

A database was compiled which cement manufacturers can use to influence and further optimise the formation of the melt phase by selecting suitable alternative fuels and their proportion.

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).

Seminars

Firing Alternative Fuels 2024

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.
