Process Equipment Solutions for Natural Pozzolan Facility

Naturally occurring pozzolans have been used in cement for thousands of years. In modern times, much of these natural materials were replaced with fly ash, which is a byproduct of burning coal for electric power generation. However, with more and more coal plants being shut down, the availability of fly ash is decreasing. This is creating a new demand for the old material, leading to the construction of new mining and processing facilities. With years of experience in mining and processing natural materials, such as frac sand, IAC is prepared to assist with the supply and installation of new natural pozzolan facilities.

SNCR NOx Control: Efficient Reduction Solutions for Cement Plants

The cement production industry is one of the world's leading contributors to greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for 8% of global CO2 emissions. Among the pollutants produced during the cement manufacturing process are Nitrogen Oxides (NOx), which cause smog, acid rain, and contribute to the formation of fine particulates. In addressing this challenge, Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) technology has emerged as a key solution to significantly reduce NOx emissions, thus promoting cleaner production in the cement industry.
