Cement production by cement-bonded wood particleboard wastes

To improve the sustainability of cement and concrete production, there is an increasing trend towards using industrial wastes throughout their production processes. The aim is to find new resources that can be used in any step of cement and concrete production and to find solutions to many problems related to the disposal of wastes. This article discusses the use of wastes generated from cement-bonded wood particle board (CB) manufacturing in cement production. CB waste, which basically contains wood chips and hydrated cement, cannot be recycled within the CB process itself; it thus has to be disposed of and does not have any economic value. However, CB waste can be burned in cement rotary kilns, which may result in certain energy savings due to the presence of wood particles as a secondary fuel. Furthermore, the hydrated cement may decompose and clinker compounds may reform during a calcination process. This work investigated the possibility of using CB waste in cement manufacturing and its effects on energy consumption and cement characteristics. The results indicate that CB waste can be successfully used to partially replace the raw mix in cement plants.


Utilization of soda and beer wastes in cementitious systems
Aleessa Alam, Burhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür; Department of Cement Engineering (2009)
To maintain the sustainability of cement and concrete production, there is a trend to use wastes in their production. Soda waste, generated by soda ash production process, and beer waste, generated by beer filtration process, are two locally produced wastes in Turkey and many other countries. The nature of these wastes, mostly their fineness, makes them possible to be used in concrete production, especially as a viscosity modifying agent in the self consolidating type of concrete. In this study, the additio...
Resource efficient and cleaner production in selected foundries through environmental performance evaluation
Usta Benli, Ayça; Demirer, Göksel Niyazi; Department of Environmental Engineering (2017)
The main objective of this study was to develop Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) measures for the ferrous foundry sector. For this purpose, environmental performance evaluation and benchmarking studies were conducted in six ferrous foundries. The environmental performance was calculated by using environmental performance indicators of specific energy and water use, metal yield and sand regeneration ratio. The gap between the benchmarks and actual performances revealed the improvement potenti...
Ozonation pre and post-treatment of denim textile mill effluents: Effect of cleaner production measures
Morali, E. Kaan; UZAL, NİĞMET; Yetiş, Ülkü (2016-11-20)
Denim production, which is one of the leading sub-sectors of textile industry that generates considerable amount of wastewater with high pollution load both from dyeing and finishing processes. This sub-sector is therefore to consider cleaner production opportunities for these processes to reduce its wastewater generation and pollution load. In a denim-producing plant, the wastewater treatability studies have revealed that the most technically applicable cleaner production alternatives are caustic recovery ...

Take-make-dispose behaviours as the basis of the linear economy model are challenged by the sustainable modes of consumption that aim to minimise the use of raw materials and waste production. The most prominent among these is the circular economy model, which resembles the production and consumption cycles to a living system, and proposes alternative systems where there is no such thing as waste but only food for another within the system (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2015). Therefore, the aim is to protect...
Life cycle assessment of off-highway trucks and belt conveyors for sustainable mining
Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa; Demirel, Nuray; Department of Mining Engineering (2011)
In recent years increasing growth rate of all industrial fields generated an emerging energy demand and consequent environmental problems worldwide. Defining environmental profiles of products and systems using environmental tools, such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), is a critical issue for sustainable mining. In order to tackle the increasing environmental challenges and air emissions induced by surface coal mining, alternative material handling options are needed to be evaluated. This research study aims...
