Solutions for green cement – alternative fuels analysis with XRF
Alternative fuels: how do they help make cement greener and cleaner?
The use of alternative fuels (AF) in the cement industry continues to increase in contrast to conventional fuels such as gas, fuel oil, coal and petroleum coke. AFs are proving to be of significant advantage in terms of both economic and environmental impact. However, they need to be conditioned and validated for suitability in kilns while meeting the regulatory emission norms. The cement industry can reduce CO2 emissions while addressing the landfill issues of organic or inorganic waste or their combustion in dedicated incinerators by focusing on alternative fuels.
Measure the concentration level of the various elements, including toxic elements, and control the quality of your end-product with X-ray fluorescence (XRF) solutions. Read how XRF solution can analyze alternative fuels incinerated in cement kilns.
