EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Cement production is known to be a polluting and energy-intensive industry. Cement plants account for 5 percent of global emissions of carbon dioxide and one of the main causes of global warming. However, cement it is literally the glue of progress. Designing Green Cement Plants provides the tools and techniques for designing new large cement plants that would promote sustainable growth, preserve natural resources to the maximum possible extent and make least possible additions to the Greenhouse Gases that cause global warming. Brief and but authoritative, this title embraces new technologies and methods such as Carbon Capture and Sequestration, as well as methods for harnessing renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. The author also discusses the efficient use of energy and materials through the use recycling. In addition, this book also examines thepossibilities of developing green cement substitutes such as Calera, Caliix, Novacem, Aether and Geopolymer cements. Includes the tools and methods for reducing the emissions of greenhouse Gases Explores technologies such as: carbon capture and storage and substitute cements Provides essential data to determining the unique factors involved in designing large new green cement plants Includes interactive excel spreadsheets Methods for preforming a cost benefits analysis for the production of green cements as opposed to conventional OPC

Nomograms For Design And Operation Of Cement Plants

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A unique publication, this set of book and CD-ROM is a handy tool for the design and operation of cement plants. Operation requires many calculations that have to be done repetitively. With this book of nomograms – graphical representations of two or more variables related to one another in such a way that a third one can be read from the nomogram - these workouts can be eliminated and the right values can be found with minimum effort with the user-friendly CD-ROM. The CD-ROM pdf pages represent the nomogram and explanatory text in a single screen. The text describes the use, input, output, scale and unit of the nomogram, plus an illustrative example. When clicking on the nomogram, it appears in its original AutoCad version, which allows the reader to draw lines to obtain the results of new inputs. Most nomograms are single-step graphics, some require of two or three progressive steps. The nomograms are grouped in four sections: 1. Basics (capacities and rates of overall cement plant; crushing, grinding; feed rates in various sections with necessary margins; quality calculations, such as the proportioning of raw materials and for arriving at related parameters; carbonates, oxides and ratios of raw meal to clinker); 2. Physical (temperatures, altitudes, atmospheric pressures and densities; areas and volumes ; volumes of silos and stock piles; half angle at centre of mills and kilns and related variables; aspects of system design); 3. Processes (calculations related to calorific values of fuel and its consumption, combustion and drying; log mean temperature difference; heat content of air, clinker, calculations related to cooling), and 4. Machinery (ball mill design, vertical roller mills, preheater design, fuel fired in calciner, kiln capacity impact, kiln sizing and design, conventional clinker coolers, pneumatic conveying, mechanical conveyors, bag filter sizing, SCAs or ESPs for different efficiencies).

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Handbook of Low Carbon Concrete brings together the latest breakthroughs in the design, production, and application of low carbon concrete. In this handbook, the editors and contributors have paid extra attention to the emissions generated by coarse aggregates, emissions due to fine aggregates, and emissions due to cement, fly ash, GGBFS, and admixtures. In addition, the book provides expert coverage on emissions due to concrete batching, transport and placement, and emissions generated by typical commercially produced concretes. Includes the tools and methods for reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases Explores technologies, such as carbon capture, storage, and substitute cements Provides essential data that helps determine the unique factors involved in designing large, new green cement plants

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Sustainable Construction Materials: Copper Slag, as part of a series of five, the book aims to promote the use of sustainable construction materials. It is different to the norm and its uniqueness lies in developing a data matrix sourced from 400 publications, contributed by 712 authors from 337 institutions in 40 countries from 1964 to 2015, on the subject of copper slag as a construction material, and systematically, analysisng, evaluating and modelling this information for use in cement, concrete, geotechnics and road pavement applications. Related environmental issues, case studies and standards are also discussed. The work establishes what is already known and can be used. It would also help to avoid repetitive research and save valuable resources, which can instead be directed towards new research to progress the use of sustainable construction materials. The book is structured in an incisive and easy to digest manner. As an excellent reference source, the book is particularly suited for researchers, academics, design engineers, specifiers, contractors, developers and certifying and regulatory authorities, seeking to promote sustainability within the construction sector. Provides an extensive source of valuable database information supported by an exhaustive and comprehensively organized list of globally published literature spanning 40-50 years, up to 2016, with over 400 references Offers an analysis, evaluation, repackaging, and modeling of existing knowledge, encouraging more responsible use of waste materials in construction Presents a wealth of knowledge for use in many sectors relating to the construction profession

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In Green Dimensions, Cliff Moughtin relates sustainable development and green design to the realm of urban design and development. Examining regional and local frameworks for design and planning, this book shows how sustainable urban design can be implemented on every scale. Working from a strong theoretical base, the author uses case studies and discusses policy developments, in order to challenge the conventional wisdom on sustainable design. The book provides a rounded discussion of the application and suitability of current practice, and predicts future design needs. Updating the reader on topics such as energy efficiency, sustainable city forms and the culture of new urbanism, this completely revised and restructured second edition also includes brand new chapters on the Urban Park and Bio-diversity.
