Analysis of energy-efficiency opportunities for the cement industry in Shandong Province, China: A case study of 16 cement plants

Publication year: 2010brbSource:/b Energy, In Press, Corrected Proof, Available online 7 June 2010brAli, Hasanbeigi , Lynn, Price , Hongyou, Lu , Wang, LanbrIn this study, 16 cement plants with New Suspension Preheater and pre-calciner (NSP) kiln were surveyed. Plant energy use was compared to both domestic (Chinese) and international best practice using the Benchmarking and Energy Saving Tool for Cement (BEST-Cement). This benchmarking exercise indicated an average technical potential primary energy savings of 12% would be possible if the surveyed plants operated at domestic best practice levels in terms of energy use per ton of cement produced. Average technical potential primary energy savings of 23% would be realized if the plants operated at international best practice levels. Then, using the bottom-up Electricity…
