D4.1 Design and performance of CEMCAP cement plant without CO2 capture
In this deliverable, the mass and energy balances of the benchmark cement plant without CO2 capture are presented. The balances have been derived from a VDZ model developed in previous projects and reproduced by Politecnico di Milano.
The electric consumptions of the benchmark plant have also been defined, focusing on the consumptions of the fans that may change when integration of CO2 capture technologies is considered.
In the final section, the economic analysis of the reference cement plant is also presented, defining the industrial cost of cement. A sensitivity analysis on the effect of fuel and electricity prices and of a carbon tax is also included.
