Optimizing Energy Utilization in the Cement Industry: An Energy Audit Approach

Dr. M. Sarada [3]

Abstract: Cement Industry is one of the major energy consuming industries and optimum use of energy is at present important for our national economy. The energy cost is the highest component of cost structure of cement manufacture. Energy cost in Indian cement Industry account for over 40 - 50 % of the manufacturing cost of cement. Out of this the share of thermal energy alone in the form of fuel is about 30 ? 35 % while the remaining 15-20% accounts for mainly electrical energy the other relatively smaller ones being explosive, diesel, etc.,. The major sources of energy to Indian Cement Industry are coal and electrical power. The specific energy consumption in Indian Cement Industry is about 33% higher as compared to relatively advanced countries in the world. Energy audit is the key to monitor energy consumption and energy flows at various locations for improving the energy efficiency. It determines the ways to reduce energy consumption per unit of product output. The present paper deals with the methods of energy audit in a cement industry to minimize energy losses and to maximize the energy utilization and efficiency.
