Abstract: In this paper, the hydrogen production and liquefaction option by utilising the waste heat from the raw material preheating sub-unit of cement facility are investigated thermodynamically. The gas turbine plant and Rankine cycle are chosen to generate power and, also in order to generate hydrogen, a part of the produced power is used for PEM electrolysis. In these conditions, the hydrogen generation from analysed integrated plant is computed as 0.028 kg/s. The energetic and exergetic effectiveness of Brayton and Rankine cycles integrated with the waste heat recovery process in the cement facility are computed as 58.24% and 42.17%, respectively, for the chosen working condition. It is also asserted that increasing the input temperature of gas turbine depended on the cyclone gas temperature, and increases the exergy efficiency of the investigated system.
