ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY FOR THE CEMENT INDUSTRY

 

Tecam in the cement sector

According to the Center for International Climate Research, the cement industry is the third largest source of carbon dioxide and VOC emissions worldwide. In order to reduce this footprint, many authorities have started to legislate cement production.

With Tecam, you will have a partner that will allow you to focus your efforts on your business with the guarantee of always being prepared to meet the most demanding environmental requirements.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY FOR THE CEMENT INDUSTRY

Specific aspects of the sector and the environment

Cement sector facilities produce particulate air emissions from the storage, transport and handling of powdery materials in the cement plant. The combustion gases generated during the entire manufacturing process have to be added to this.

Gaseous emissions into the air from the rotary kiln system are the main environmental problem for cement production today. Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, is emitted in considerable quantities. Most of the emissions of this gas derive from the calcination of limestone, which is the main component of the clinker that will become part of the cement.

The cement manufacturing process and the environment

During the production processes, cement plants generate air pollutant emissions in various circumstances: emissions under normal factory operating conditions, emissions under abnormal conditions (start-ups, shutdowns), and fugitive and diffuse emissions.

Tecam provides you with equipment and advice on environmental technology for the elimination of all the pollutant emissions generated throughout the production process.

Pollutants in the cement sector

During the cement manufacturing process, combustion gases such as nitrogen (NOx) and sulphur oxides (SO2) are generated.

Other emissions of considerable quantities that can be treated by Tecam are NOx, SO2, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), CO and NH3. A specific aspect of the cement industry is that emissions are not only produced during manufacturing but can also derive from the raw materials themselves in a less processed state. Some raw materials incorporated into cement contain small proportions of hydrocarbons which are volatised in the upper stages of preheating and are emitted as pollutants.

Cement slag is formed at high temperatures in kilns. Consequently, large quantities of NOx are generated in the process, which can be treated with SNCR systems, for example.
