Concentrated Solar Power for High-Temperature Solar Process Heat

Cement is the most widely used building material in the world. One of its key ingredients is calcium oxide (CaO), also called quicklime, which can be produced by calcination from naturally occurring limestone (CaCO3). Calcination is an energy-intensive, around-the-clock decomposition process at around 900 °C, usually powered by the combustion [...]
