ALLPLAN Energy Efficiency Program for the Austrian Cement Industry

VÖZ (Association of Austrian cement Industry)
07/2008 - 01/2010

The aim of this project was to identify energy saving potential as well as CO2-emissions reduction potential in the Austrian Cement Industry. Therefore Energy Audits were carried out for all 9 Austrian cement plants as well as 3 milling plants. Additional an industry wide potential study for energy saving opportunities was carried out



Description of actual services provided by your staff within the assignment:

Allplan prepared mass and energy balances for all 12 sites and analyzed all energy relevant processes (excluded the mills and the rotary furnace, which were analysed in a parallel project by the German VDZ). Measures like drying of input material, heat recovering systems, district heating, central cooling or electricity auto production were developed for the plants.

Finally the results of all sites were summarised in a study about the saving opportunities in the Austrian cement industry. 

The following sites are member of the Austrian Cement Industry and all of these plant were included in this project:

  • Holcim
  • Kirchdorfer Zementwerk Hofmann
  • Lafarge Perlmooser Mannersdorf
  • Lafarge Perlmooser Retznei
  • Schretter & Cie Kirchbichl
  • Schretter & Cie Vils
  • SPZ Zementwerk Eiberg
  • Wietersdorfer & Peggauer Peggau
  • Wietersdorfer & Peggauer Wietersdorf
  • Wopfinger Baustoffindustrie
  • Zementwerk Hatschek
