Ahsan Ali, Gouraw Beohar
Municipal Solid Waste, alternative fuels, Cement rotary kiln. FEA etc.
Ordinary Portland Cement is the most common type of cement manufactured today and how to produce it from coal as well as alternate fuel, will be the focus of this review paper. Portland Cement can be used directly as is, or mixed with different additives i.e. slag or fly ash, to form composite cements with various properties. Clinker design makes a great role for combustion of fuel. To provide the energy required for the clinker phase transition, different types of fossil and alternative fuels like biomass, rubber MSW etc are commonly fired through the main burner. Thus, there is a need to find out the applicability of alternative fuel in India cement plant.The objective of the present review paper is: To gain improved methodical and technical facts on the combustion of Municipal Solid Waste as alternative fuels in the cement rotary kiln.
