    Cement production requires comminution of a variety of feed materials to very fine sizes. Different equipment is used to achieve these levels of fineness at the designed production rates. More recently a trend towards the use of high-pressure grinding rolls has developed to reduce the reliance on ball mills. As new cement product mixes are being sought to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, changes in grinding philosophies are being examined. For example, is it more efficient to grind the constituents separately or together? This decision and other issues will be examined in this paper.
