Fuel and Other Values

Some HiCAl products contain significant portions of carbon for thermal substitution in cement kilns. Due to the high content of alumina, HiCAl products are also suitable alumina correctives if needed.

Replacement of traditional fuels with alternative fuels is an important strategy for cement plants to reduce production cost, greenhouse gas emissions and improve sustainability of cement manufacturing. The carbon portion of HiCAl products of up to more than 40% carbon in HiCAl 40, allows to substitute other fuels in cement kilns up to 10% of the required heat for clinker burning.

For cement plants that need natural alumina correctives like bauxite or clays, using HiCAl products as an alternative raw material, is a more attractive option, saving natural resources and cost.
