1st Global CemCoal Conference on coal for cement and lime
Coal is still the most-used fuel in the global cement industry, supplying perhaps 90% of the global cement industry's calorific needs. Global CemCoal will bring together coal shippers and traders with coal buyers from the cement and lime industry, as well as providing a forum for coal and by-product users, for information exchange, networking and business.
Recent estimates suggest that the 860Bnt of global proven reserves of coal are adequate to meet demand for more than 100 years. It takes around 200-450kg to make 1t of cement, depending on the calorific content of the coal and the efficiency of the pyroprocessing system. The cement industry uses around 4% of the world's coal supply, compared to 16% for the steel industry and 62% for power generation. The global cement industry uses approximately 330Mt of coal each year, out of a total global coal consumption in 2014 of around 8300Mt. Facilities for the preparation of solid fuels for cement production may account for around 15% of the total cost of a cement plant, perhaps US$45m of the cost of a US$300m 1Mt/year cement plant, while fuel costs typically account for around a third of the cost of manufacturing cement. Coal combustion products (CCPs) such as fly ash can be used as alternative raw materials or as cement additives. The four main grades of coal - lignite, sub-bituminous, bituminous and anthracite - will all be discussed at the Global CemCoal Conference.
