Advanced grinding technologies


Technology Description

A range of more efficient raw material and fuel grinding technologies for cement production are under research and development. They include contact-free grinding systems, ultrasonic-comminution, high voltage power pulse fragmentation and low temperature comminution.

Relevance for Net Zero

Advanced grinding technologies could decrease the electricity intensity of cement production beyond current best practice levels and provide means to manage electricity demand more flexibly. Related indirect CO2 reductions would be dependent on the CO2 intensity of different electricity grids: given that the grid will be moving towards increasingly lower CO2 emission to get on track with the NZE Scenario, the benefit is mostly in terms of reducing costs and pressure on the electricity system.
