First cement clinker produced with oxyfuel cooler technology

Testing of the innovative oxyfuel clinker cooler prototype
The CEMCAP partners IKN, HeidelbergCement and VDZ have successfully managed to produce cement clinker using the oxyfuel cooler technology. The innovative oxyfuel clinker cooler prototype has been tested during the last 6 months, as part of the EU research project CEMCAP. The project is focused on preparing the ground for large-scale implementation of CO2 capture at cement plants for later storage or use (CCS, CCU). The European cement industry could make a significant contribution to climate protection through CO2 capture technology, which is essential for future mitigation of cement industry’s process emissions. continue
