It is largely responsible for portland cement's initial set and early strength gain. Dicalcium silicate, C 2 S: C 2 S hydrates and hardens slowly. It is largely responsible for strength gain after one week. Ferrite, C 4 AF: This is a fluxing agent which reduces the melting temperature of the raw materials in the kiln (from 3,000 o F to 2,600 ...

Peter A. Claisse, in Civil Engineering Materials, 2016 17.9 Environmental impact. Cement production is one of the largest industries in the world. Annual world production in 2013 was approximately 4 GT (of which, about half was in China). It is produced in kilns at around 1400 o C (2500 o F), and approximately 750 kg (1650 lb) of CO 2 are released for each tonne (2205 lb.) …

So the material balance is now: Raw Materials = Products + Waste Products + Stored Products + Losses where Losses are the unidentified materials. Just as mass is conserved, so is energy conserved in food-processing operations. The ener-gy coming into a unit operation can be balanced with the energy coming out and the energy stored.

Finished cement is produced by finely grinding together around 95% cement clinker with 5% gypsum (or anhydrite) which helps to retard the setting time of the cement. The quality of cement clinker is directly related to the chemistry of the raw materials used. Around 80–90% of raw material for the kiln feed is limestone. Clayey raw material
