Material Utilization & Energy Optimization


Optimization of raw mix design is for use of alternate/ waste materials & fuel for mineral conservation and Energy optimization:

Coverage/ Methodology:

It involves:

  • Collection of plant design and operating data.
  • Collection and analysis of raw material & fuel data.
  • Collection of product portfolio and quality data.
  • Collection and performance assessment of preblending and blending equipments.    
  • Particle size analysis for all the raw materials, fuel, clinker and cement.
  • Proximate & Ultimate analysis of fuels.
  • Cost of all the raw materials, fuels, alternate/ waste materials.
  • Working out an optimum raw mix design to meet the clinker target quality as per the quality assurance plan, at the minimum cost.
  • Energy optimization by optimization of fineness of raw materials, intermediate & final products maintaining the target quality.  
  • Estimation of capital investments of the proposed measures.
  • Estimation of return on investment in terms of Simple Payback period.


Use of alternate/ waste materials & fuel and energy optimization will lead to:

  • Conservation of natural/ mineral resources.
  • Consistency in quality.
  • Reduced cost of production.
  • Increased profitability.
