The Vietnam Association for Building Materials (VABM) recently hosted a symposium on “Processing waste to alternative fuels for the cement industry” in Hanoi. The symposium covered the potential uses of alternative fuels in cement plants with processes of Loesche Group.

About 190 representatives of companies from the cement and environment sectors, government agencies, and institutes attended the event, which culminated in several ‘World Café Sessions”, where delegates could discuss their specific questions with experts from Loesche and subsidiaries, ATEC, and aixergee.

During these sessions, a Vietnamese cement producer presented the challenges they faced with secondary fuel burning due to process disturbances.

After exchanging the details of the problem, aixergee – specialised in the optimsation of cement production – advised the client to make some minor changes to his alternative feeding locations in the calciner. Only one week later, the client had successfully realised these changes without equipment modification and was able to increase his thermal substitution rate by 20%, whilst achieving a more stable plant operation.”

“We are Thanh Cong 3 Cement Company with co-processing waste in Vietnam,” said Sais Le Van Cuong of Thanh Cong 3 Cement. “At the symposium ‘Processing waste to alternative fuels for the cement industry’, you advised us on waste disposal at calciner of preheater (centre burner). Now, we are operating well and can reduce coal [use by] about 1 tph of coal – 20% fuel consumption.”
