ReduDust A System for Bypass dust recovery By: Ing. Jonathan forinton ing. Pedro montes de Oca

2 Redudust Agenda: Introduction Basic Concept Products Application
Pilot Plant Industrial Installation Summary

3 Introduction Many plants have implemented a bypass for removing
chlorine from the pyrosystem Main Advantage: Stable operation despite Cl input Main challenges today: Clean disposal of bypass dust Recuperation of raw material Winning of byproducts

4 Properties of Bypass dust:
Introduction Properties of Bypass dust: Very poisonous for the ambient in contact with water Alkalis (K2O, Na2O), Chlorine (Cl) Sulfur (SO3) Mercury, heavy Metals Use today: Limited addition to cement Rest landfilled Use with REDUDUST: Economically friendly solution: conversion to marketable products: salts + clean raw meal

5 Basic concept Before leaching – particles covered with Micro Crystals of Chlorine based salts Water dissolves the Micro Crystals - uncovered particles are now able to react with water Blue areas indicate free lime Free lime reacts to Lime Hydrate (orange)

7 ReduDust Process Plant
Mass Balance Overview Data given for typical Egypt bypass dust Bypass Dust Sewage water Chemicals Cement Waste Heat 5,0 t/h Product Material 6,0 t/h 6,0 t/h Potable Water 4,0 t/h ReduDust Process Plant 1,0 t/h Salts 2,0 t/h 10 MW

8 Intermediate Products
Limestone slurry collected sediments from CO2 precipitation Heavy metal sludge collected sediments from heavy metal treatment process Both are usually not leaving the process !! Limestone slurry (dry) Heavy metals sludge (dry)

9 Lime hydrate filter cake Salt
Final Products Lime hydrate filter cake Desalted bypass dust released from filter press Salt Crystallized mixture of all salt contained in brine Separation and purification of main elements possible e.g. Potassium chloride (KCl) Filter cake Salt

10 Filter cake (low chlorine) –approximately 35% of residual moisture
Product Applications Filter cake (low chlorine) –approximately 35% of residual moisture Reintroduce back to process into cement mill due to low Cl content (<1%) SO2 Trap Preheater Tower and/or Filter Equipment Recycling as Raw Material: Calcining at 580°C, Energy 1.99MJ/kg CaO instead of 3.17 MJ/kg CaO Additive for Cement Blends No need for new material licenses, because it is considered as bypass dust

11 Product Applications Salts
Valuable product on market (e.g. fertilizer production at around 300 €/t market price) Valuable Raw Material for various processes in the chemical Industry Meets all European laws for chemical products

12 Pilot Installation Pilot Plant ATEC Technical Center (AUT)


14 Pilot Installation Drying Crystallizing Chemical Treatment Filtration
Mixing Mixing

15 Pilot Installation Bypass dust storage Slurry rapid mixer
Peristaltic pump Filter press

16 Pilot Installation Chemical dozing Crystallizer Sedimentation tank
Process analytics Dryer


18 First Industrial-Sized Plant
Industrial Installation First Industrial-Sized Plant Holcim Rohoznik

19 Industrial Installation
Data given for typical European bypass dust Basic design principles Utilization of waste heat from the cement plant Installation must follow chemical installation requirements especially for environmental and safety reasons Automatic operation Reception of Bypass dust from different plants is considered

20 Industrial Installation
Data given for typical European bypass dust Plant capacity Standard design capacity of tpy of Bypass dust 4.000 tons of salts per year (approx tons of KCl)

21 Mixing & Chemical treatment
PLANT ARRANGEMENT Respecting optimal flow Bypass dust Filter cake Brine Salt Chemicals Dimensions of footprint 24 m x 36 m Crystallization Bypass dust storage, dosing and transport Mixing & Chemical treatment Tanks storage Filtration KCl silo Chemicals NaCl bags Filter cake outlet

22 MATERIAL OVERVIEW Bypass dust 20k t/y Filter cake 16k t/y
CKD 8 – 15 % of Chlorine Filter cake 16k t/y Washed bypass dust <1% of Chloride moisture <30% Brine 20k t/y Saturated salty water >10% of Chlorine Chemicals used 4 common industrial chemicals available on the market Salt KCl >95% purity NaCl salt >98% purity

23 Industrial Installation
Data given for typical European bypass dust Operational data 3 operators full time operation in 3 shifts working days depending on kiln operation due to its heat demand (important for design of the storage capacity) Heat need for crystallization and drying is around 1.4 MW Designed to handle 5-15% chlorine content bypass dust Overall Cl-extraction efficiency >90%
