  • Sample preparation for the analysis of secondary fuel in cement plants

    Secondary fuel can be a very inhomogeneous sample, containing all types of polymers, paper, wood and low fractions of metal. Also recycled wood or parts of automobile tires might be used as secondary fuel. Before using it as fuel in the production of cement, several chemical analyses are necessary as quality control. Cement is made by heating limestone (calcium carbonate), with small quantities ...

  • Munchers’ vital role in alternative fuel production

    SRM is one of Europe’s largest companies in the field of organic waste disposal, processing around 300,000tonnes a year. Solving waste problems through recycling or energy recovery is its speciality, and the ISO14001 registered company operates a total of seven sites in the UK. SRM was acquired by the worldwide building materials group Heidelberg Cement in 1999 because of the considerable ...

  • Alternative Fuel from Waste

    Alternative Fuel From Waste Municipal waste has always been seen by the public as the foul-smelling waste that nobody wants near home. In the last decades due to the cost increasing of raw materials for heating and electric energy production, it has begun to evaluate and use waste as an “alternative” energy source. ...

  • Fuel upgrading improves cars operation

    Gasoline is the mix of easily boiling liquid various hydrocarbons received at distillation of oil, natural gas reclamation, processing of fuel firm types and at secondary processing of products of oil distillation. The most important for gasoline are detonation requirements and fractional structure on which their properties depend. Operation without detonation of the engine is reached by gasoline ...

  • Refinery remediation: fuel recovery and recycling

    Introduction The site is a former refinery that occupied approximately 64 acres of land in West Texas. Refinery operations produced all grades of gasoline, tractor fuels, diesel, distillate products, and fuel oils and operated between 1939 and 1954. As a result of past waste management practices, releases to soils and ultimately ground water occurred, resulting in the formation of a ...

  • The use of wire mesh reactors to characterise solid fuels and provide improved understanding of larger scale thermochemical processes

    Most reaction products from the pyrolysis and the early stages of gasification of solid fuels are chemically reactive. Secondary reactions between primary products and with heated fuel particles tend to affect the final product distributions. The extents and pathways of these secondary reactions are determined mostly by the heating rate and the size and shape of the reaction zone and of the ...

  • Staged Thermal Treatment Combined With Pyrometallurgical Smelting Producing Energy and Products From Waste

    Incineration of waste is considered as a state-of-the-art technology. However staged gasification in combination with pyrometallurgical smelting is ready for market introduction and offers principal advantages. These are higher efficiency (up to 35% electricity), efficient and cheaper fuel gas cleaning (less emissions), high quality secondary products (synthetic basalt), high input flexibility, ...


  • Mono muncher improves process efficiency

    A major cement company in the UK, Rugby Cement produces in the region of 2.6m tonnes of cement per year (0.5mtonnes using the wet kiln process) which is used primarily by the construction industry.
