Other uses of coal - World Coal Association

Other uses of coal. Coal supports numerous non-energy industries including steel and cement production, coal-to-chemicals, rare earth element extraction, carbon fibre production, industrial electrodes and many others. Cement is critical to the construction industry – mixed with water and gravel it forms concrete, a key construction material.

Energy Use – Cement

Energy Use. A cement manufacturing plant requires significant amounts of energy to produce clinker, the main ingredient in cement. Energy in the form of electricity is required to prepare the raw meal (typically limestone, clay, sand and iron ore), run the kiln and, in integrated cement plants, to grind the clinker, gypsum and other materials to produce cement in grinding mills.

The energy required to produce materials: constraints on ...

where E i is the energy use per year for material 'i' (J), Q i is the material production per year (mass), and e i is the energy intensity (MJ kg −1).Our total energy use then is just the sum E T =ΣE i.. First, we look at the energy intensity of material production (e) and review the reasons for the high values and the steps that can be taken to reduce these values.

cement, concrete - World Coal Association - EnergyBC

Coal is used as an energy source in cement production. Large amounts of energy are required to produce cement. Kilns usually burn coal in the form of powder and consume around 450g of coal for about 900g of cement produced. Coal combustion products (CCPs), such as Fly Ash also play an important role in cement manufacture and in the construction ...

In industrialized countries, primary energy consumption in a typical cement plant is up to 75% fossil fuel and up to 25% electrical energy using a dry process. Pyro-processing requires the major share of the total thermal energy use. This accounts for about 93–99% of total fuel consumption [20], [25], [26].
