Sturmfels, E.K., 1949. The production of sulphuric acid and Portland cement from calcium sulphate and aluminium silicates: the chemical fundamentals. Record  1949/044. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

Sulphuric acid may be produced not only from sulphides but also from calcium sulphate, by the use of which portland cement can be manufactured simultaneously with the acid. For the manufacture of sulphuric acid and portland cement from calcium sulphate and aluminium silicates, a mixture of anhydrite, clay, sand, and coke as a reducing agent is usually used. The chemical fundamentals underlying the manufacturing process are discussed in this report. The chemical reactions involved in the production process and the uses of raw materials are described at length.
