### Optimization of lime kilns based on strategies of advanced

The energy efficiency of a lime kiln may be described by the heat rate. The heat rate is the amount of energy that is consumed to create a certain amount of reburned lime. For an efficient lime kiln the heat rate is about 1.5 Gcal/ton of CaO 6 . Cenibra s Lime Kilns There are three lime kilns in the mill.
