Caption

Inside the rotary kiln used for the pyro processing stage of manufacture of Portland cement. In this place the temperature reaches 1,450 degrees Celsius.

These are the most important 90 meters of the long "path from stone to cement" where calcium carbonate reacts with silica-bearing minerals to form a mixture of calcium silicates.
