AN OVERVIEW OF INDUSTRIAL WASTES AS FUEL AND MINERALIZER IN THE CEMENT INDUSTRY
Keywords:industry waste, clinker, mineralizer
The cement industry worldwide is facing growing challenges in conserving material and energy resources. According to the International Energy Agency, the main levers for cement producers are the increase in energy efficiency and the use of alternative materials. This work shows the application of industrial wastes in cement industry as fuel and mineralizer that are found out in many studies of literature. The works showed that the waste fuels are viable but it is necessary to take to account that the burning behavior of most waste fuels differs significantly from the behavior of fossil fuels due to higher particle sizes, material densities and transport characteristics. On the other hand the mineralizer decreases of burning temperature of Portland clinker without altering the clinker quality.
