The recent geopolitical situation has highlighted the misplaced reliance on fossil fuels and the fragility of our renewable energy supply. The solution is to turn all kinds of waste into fuel. Realtime online Near Infrared (NIR) analysis not only provides the opportunity to minimize volumes of organic fuels by increasing the amount of alternative fuels,...

2030 is a crucial benchmark for the carbon neutrality journey: reducing the CO2 footprint while producing enough cement to meet demand will be challenging. Over 80% of the cement operation’s carbon emissions are released during clinker production. Also, the substitution of fossil fuel with carbon-neutral fuel is the key level to achieving the 2030 and...

The cement industry is moving increasingly towards the use of alternative fuels for the complete decarbonization of cement and concrete. It raises questions about safety and handling new fuels and materials. Fires are especially common in factories with an increased concentration of combustive materials, volatile substances, and equipment. Raúl Moreno, Director at Firefly Ab, the Swedish...

The cement manufacturing process is highly intensive in heat consumption and carbon emissions. Stakeholders are increasing pressure to decarbonize not only the cement industry but the construction industry, too. But how we can achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 by implementing actual and effective solutions? Edgar Martinez, Sustainability Senior Director at Cementos Argos will approach this...

The cement industry is responsible for almost 8 % of global CO2 emissions. RDF and alternative fuels require a dedicated transport system inside cement plants and the use of pipe conveyors is nowadays state of the art. At CarbonZero: Alternative Fuels and raw Materials Global Conference and Exhibition (Nov 10-11), M. Sc. Eng. Fabio Chignoli...
