Cement and concrete materials science is a multidisciplinary subject, involving engineers, geologists, chemists, physicists and many others This website is for the great majority of us who aren't university professors of cement chemistry but whose work requires a good understanding of the subject
Technically, a cement producer can have almost complete control over clinker composition by blending raw materials of different compositions to produce the desired result In practice, however, clinker composition is largely determined by the compositions of the locally-available raw materials which make up the bulk of the raw meal
The production of one ton of portland cement requires more than 15 ton of raw materials Raw material preparation is an electricity intensive stage, typically requiring 25 to 35 kWh of electricity per ton of processed raw material, although the energy consumption can be as low as 11 kWh/t

Raw materials used for manufacturing of Portland cement are found naturally in the earth crust It is made primarily from calcareous materials, argillaceous materials and gypsum Calcareous materials containing limestone or chalk and argillaceous materials containing an oxide of silica-alumina and iron are found as clay or shale
Refractory cements and raw materials differ in terms of cement properties and material featur Cement properties include maximum use temperature, thermal conductivity, modulus of rupture (MOR) or flexural strength, compressive strength, particle or aggregate size, density, and shrinkage
Marls are an excellent raw material for cement manufacture, because they contain the lime and the clay component in an already homogenized condition Calcareous marl of the chemical composition equal to that of Portland cement raw mix, are used for the manufacture of so-called natural cement; however, deposits of such raw materials are not .
