Numerical investigation to reduce environmental emissions from manufacturing industries
This paper aims to study carbon dioxide emissions from the cement manufacturing under wind conditions. These effects are investigated by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code used both method such as a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) and K-ε methods to investigate a spread of pollution in vicinity of manufacturing. The predicted concentration, velocity and temperature of CO2 were used as the safety criterion to provide the useful information about a pollution amount resulted under variant environmental and structural conditions. A detailed look at results is beyond the scope of analysis to determine optimal CO2 emission. From the present numerical simulation the carbon dioxide appears to be the best candidate as tracer gas and Simulation (LES) methods, which directly calculate the large-scale turbulent structures and reserve modeling offer the best analysis of turbulent flows.
