The Future Sustainability of Cement
The earliest recorded production of cement dates hundreds of years ago; however, the first industrial production of this widely used construction product began in the middle of the 19th century. Since this point, global production of cement reaches 2.8 billion tons each year; a number that is expected to continue to rise to up to 4 billion tons more each year1. As a result of this massive production rate, the cement industry faces challenges in remaining sustainable and environmentally friendly throughout all manufacturing procedures, such as by limiting their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
