Forschungsergebnisse: Dauerhaftigkeit von Beton nach dem Performance-Prinzip - Zustandserfassung (Projekt 1: Objektsammlung)

Available in German

Ziel des IGF-Projekts war die Erfassung der Zuverlässigkeit eines repräsentativen Bauwerksbestandes, geplant und erbaut auf Grundlage der DIN 1045:2001. Hierfür sollte ein repräsentativer Bauwerksbestand ausgewählt werden, der Einwirkungen der Expositionsklassen Karbonatisierung (XC4), Chlorideinwirkung (XD3) und Frosteinwirkung (XF3 und XF4) ausgesetzt ist.

Partial oxyfuel - Separate calcination of raw meal to concentrate CO₂ in the exhaust gas

Available in German and English

The capture of CO₂ and its subsequent use and storage are key elements of the cement industry's decarbonisation strategy. The separation of CO₂ from waste gas is an energy-intensive and complex process. This process can be made simpler and more efficient by achieving the highest possible CO₂ concentration in the flue gas. If the calcination of the raw meal is separated from the actual clinker burning process, this considerably facilitates the concentration of CO₂ in the flue gas and reduces the "contamination" of the CO₂ with (false) air.

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.

Seminars

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.

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.
