(June 5, 2020)

The Clinker is basic intermediate product for producing cement by grinding the same with Gypsum, with or without Fly Ash and Slag to produce a variety of cement. The Clinker is produced by Pyroprocessing of Raw Mix which is composed of Lime Stone and Iron Ore ground together to a fine powder. The major challenge was to increase the Clinker production as further increase in production was not possible through normal route due to a no. of constraints. This case study is about finding the alternate and innovative way of producing Clinker which has led to an overall reduction in fuel consumption per unit of Clinker produced and an overall increase in process efficiency with reduced CO2 emission and waste being converted to Clinker. The environmental benefit is so huge and that is why the new Clinker is referred to as Green Clinker.
