Cement Kiln Dust (CKD): Characterisation and Utilisation in Cement and Concrete

Cement Kiln Dust (CKD) is a composite material consisting of highly variable crystalline phases which make CKD a complex material to classify and characterize in specific terms. Depending on its reactivity and although results often vary widely, CKD has been found to have limited value as cement replacement. The general trend is that mixes with cement kiln dust in quantities of 15% or less, as a cement replacement, exhibit a promising behavior, since results indicate that CKD at these quantities act as a filler and has the effect of accelerating hydration. Most work with kiln dust has shown that kiln dust can be used as a perfect activator in pozzolanic blended cements.
