Waste heat utilisation and its reclamation is important for increasing the efficiency of the electric power production and for decreased consumption of primary energy. Waste heat can be utilised for the electric power production or for manufacturing and processing purposes. According to long-term forecasts, the consumption of electric power with current consumption of about 150 TWh, can be increased to about 230 TWh in around 2040, what may lead to the increased energy consumption from fuels and the increased emission of harmful contaminants to the atmosphere. The cement subsector, next to the glass industry, is among the most power-consuming industries, and it consumes about 12-15% of total energy consumed by industry in total, whereas the CO2 emission from such industry exceeds about 5% in worldwide scale. In the cement sector, there is an increasing need for useful reclamation of waste energy, in order to obtain high energy-saving factors, and hence the financial and environmental benefits. In this paper the chances for waste energy reclamation from a rotary kiln are presented, with means of the used adsorption chillers.
