Waste, Co-Processing, Utilization, Cement, Alternate Fuel and Raw Materials (AFR)


Industrial wastes are normally characterized with its toxic and hazardous nature. Proper disposal of huge quantity of industrial wastes into environmentally safe manner is troublesome for waste generators as well as authorities of the country. Proper disposal needs energy, expertise in its handling and manifold economical cost. Further, land disposal of industrial wastes leads to liability of its supervision for decades and cost of cleanup in case of failure of landfill. The cement industry is an intensive consumer of natural material resources, energy and also having great potential of greenhouse gas emission. Some of the industrial wastes are having lesser hazardous characteristics and potential for its reuse/ reutilization. Chemical gypsum, Iron Sludge, ETP sludge from textile effluent, dust from foundry or metallurgical activities, marble waste, fly ash etc are having Cementious properties or Pozzolana properties can be utilized for manufacturing of blended cement. Proper use of wastes as alternate raw materials can decrease the environmental impacts lowering the consumption of natural materials & embodied energy with associated waste management activities. Further, utilization of wastes as AFR reduces economical cost of its proper incineration or secured disposal at landfills and also reduces economical costs towards fresh materials consumption & energy requirements at cement industry.
