Shaft kiln for calcining raw meal for clinker production in the cement industry - an efficient technology for concentrating CO₂ in the flue gas

Available in German and English

The capture of CO₂ and its subsequent use and storage are essential elements of the cement industry's decarbonisation strategy. The capture of CO₂ from the flue gas is energy-intensive and complex. It can be carried out more easily and efficiently by maximising the CO₂ concentration in the flue gas. The separation of the calcination of the limestone in the raw meal from the burning process to produce clinker phases simplifies the accumulation of CO₂ in the flue gas significantly.

Environmental Data of the German Cement Industry 2021

Available in German and English

In keeping with our time-honoured tradition, this year's edition of the "Environmental data of the German cement industry" again provides an in-depth insight into the use of raw materials, energy input and the various emissions produced by German cement manufacturers. This encompasses not only the dust and dust bound constituents, but also the inorganic and organic exhaust gas compounds. A further aspect of our environmental data is information on carbon dioxide emissions, the reduction of which is a particular focal point in connection with the decarbonisation of cement production.

Performance-based concept for sufficient ASR resistance of concrete

Available in German and German

The thesis developed a "Performance-based concept for sufficient ASR resistance of concrete" to more effectively prevent damage to concrete structures due to alkali-silica reaction (ASR). This is based on a new method for testing and evaluating the effective alkali content, especially of clinker-efficient cements with several main constitutens, and on the results of the long-term behaviour of concrete cubes in outdoor exposure site tests.

Naturschutz und Zementindustrie - Projektteil 2: Literaturstudie

Available in German

In der Studie wird neben einschlägiger Fachliteratur auch unveröffentlichtes Material erstmals systematisch ausgewertet. Insgesamt wird auf rund 600 Literaturstellen Bezug genommen. Eine zusammenfassende naturschutzfachliche Bewertung zeigt, dass nicht nur ehemalige, sondern auch betriebene Abbaustätten zum Artenschutz beitragen. Das Vorkommen seltener bzw. gefährdeter Tier- und Pflanzenarten ist vor allem auf die Strukturvielfalt und die Refugialfunktion der Abbauareale zurückzuführen.

Naturschutz und Zementindustrie - Projektteil 1: Auswertung einer Umfrage

Available in German

Die Umfrage bezieht sich auf alle integrierten Zementwerke in Deutschland. Die Auswertung zeigt u. a., dass auf rund 54 % der ehemaligen Abbauflächen die Folgenutzung "Naturschutz" umgesetzt wird. Demgegenüber dominiert bei der Vornutzung der Ackerbau, d. h. eine intensive Form der Landwirtschaft. Neben weiteren Daten zum Verhältnis von Rohstoffgewinnung und Naturschutz enthält die Broschüre auch Angaben zu Abbaumengen, zum Flächenbedarf und zur räumlichen Verteilung der Abbaustätten.
