UC3 Reduces Fossil Fuel consumption by Increasing Alternative Fuels
The UC3 technology allowed a significant reduction of energy costs by increasing Alternative Fuels in Cement Production.
1,400 t clk/day
Petcoke and Alternative Fuels (waste tires, RDF, among others)
ALTERNATIVE FUEL RATE (AF)
THERMAL CONSUMPTION (SHC)
|Reliability Factor||+5||%||Increased combustion efficiency due to less kiln stops|
|Alternative Fuel Rate (AF)||+8||%||Reduction of petcoke consumption|
|Thermal Consumption (SHC)||-20 (+2%)||kcal/kg||Reduction of petcoke consumption|
|Petcoke / Kiln Feed Ratio||-10||%||∑ AF & SHC|
|Ammonia consumption||-92||%||Reduction of ammonia injection resulting from increased AF rate and increased Kiln stability|
Greater combustion efficiency: allows an increase of Alternative Fuels and Reliability Factor.
