The problem caused by the usage of storage and incineration methods for disposal of waste is one of the most important environmental problems today. The usage of waste as alternative fuels or raw materials in the cement industry reduces the consumption of nonrenewable energy resources and prevents the rapid depletion of natural resources. The co-processing of waste with raw materials in the cement industry is an opportunity to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. In the cement industry, a cement clinker kiln with a long retention time and an oxidation atmosphere at high temperature provides combustion of waste completely. On the other hand, the usage of alternative energy resources has a positive impact on reducing the dependency on fossil fuels and in reducing CO2 emissions. The co-processing of waste reduces carbon dioxide emissions resulting from the use of fossil fuels during the production of cement and prevents carbon dioxide emissions caused by incineration plants. Non-renewable energy resources in the world can be evaluated economically. Waste disposal can be carried out and carbon dioxide emissions caused by waste incinerators can be prevented by using waste instead of fossil fuels in the cement industry. The aim of this paper is thus to show the effect of using waste as an alternative fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
