Air Products are aiming to assist cement manufacturers who are looking to improve combustion and lower costs, while increasing alternative fuel usage and reducing emissions.
The company will feature its proprietary oxygen injection technologies at the IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Industry Conference in San Antonio, Texas, from May 13-17.
Air Products has helped customers with all types of kilns to improve their operations by implementing oxygen-enhanced combustion in cement manufacturing.
Oxygen enrichment is a flexible, efficient, cost-effective technology that can help improve the profitability of a cement operation.
With minimal capital investment, cement manufacturers can increase production by 5 to 30%, increase use of alternative and waste fuels by 30 to 80%, decrease emissions, improve overall kiln operation, and attain more consistent product quality.
Conference attendees can learn about Air Products’ new, state-of-the-art Clean Energy Laboratory, which enables remote monitoring of real-time combustion tests from locations around the world.
Located in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the Clean Energy Laboratory facilitates development and full-scale testing of actual combustion and gasification systems using a full spectrum of gaseous, liquid, and solid fuels from customers.
For more than 50 years, Air Products has been developing innovative oxygen-based combustion technologies to help customers improve productivity, reduce energy consumption, reduce emissions, and increase the use of alternative fuels.
