(PDF) Conservation of Limestone in Cement Production

There is a need to conserve limestone used in cement (Ordinary Portland Cement or OPC) production, on the one hand and optimally use cement in the construction, on the other.

Raw materials for cement manufacturing

Lime Component Limestone: Common forms of calcium carbonate used as raw material for cement manufacturing are limestone and chalk.Limestone is of predominantly fine grained crystalline structure, its hardness is between 1.8 to 3.0 of the Mohs scale of hardness and specific gravity 2. To 2.8. Limestone usually contains admixtures of clay substance or iron compounds, which influences its color.

Abstract: Despite the presence of raw materials (limestone and clay) deposits for Portland cement production, the major part of cement sold in Cameroon is from crushed imported clinker. This contributes to high cost of this material and reduction of local employment. In this study and based on existing data, a multi-criteria analysis tool was

Cement Production an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Cement production is one of the largest industries in the world. Annual world production in 2013 was approximately 4 GT (of which, about half was in China). It is produced in kilns at around 1400o C (2500 o F), and approximately 750 kg (1650 lb) of CO 2 are released for each tonne (2205 lb.) that is made.

Raw Materials Used in Cement Industry CMA India

Limestone comprises 95% of core raw material for cement production. No wonder then that the cement sector governs demand, supply and pricing of limestone (as well as coal) to some extent. According to some estimates, around 180-250 kg of coal and about 1.5 tonne of limestone is required to produce a tonne of cement.
