Calcium, the element of highest concentration in portland cement, is obtained from a variety of calcareous raw materials, including limestone, chalk, marl, sea shells, aragonite, and an impure limestone known as "natural cement rock".

Is Green Concrete Truly Environmentally Friendly?

 · In a race to develop clean energy technologies, a question appeared: ''Is green concrete truly environmentally friendly?'' Every year, over 4 million tons of concrete are produced, accounting for approximately 8% of global CO2 emissions. concrete production is a difficult and complex industry, which involves transformation in powerful furnaces of limestone and clay.

 · Cement production begins with limestone, a sedimentary rock. Once quarried, it is mixed with a silica source, such as industrial byproducts slag or fly ash, and gets fired in a kiln at 2,700 degrees Fahrenheit. What comes out of the kiln is called clinker. Cement plants grind clinker down to an extremely fine powder and mix in a few additives.

Energy Use – Cement

Energy Use. A cement manufacturing plant requires significant amounts of energy to produce clinker, the main ingredient in cement. Energy in the form of electricity is required to prepare the raw meal (typically limestone, clay, sand and iron ore), run the kiln and, in integrated cement plants, to grind the clinker, gypsum and other materials to produce cement in grinding mills.

Raw Material Substitution

The main raw material used in cement production has traditionally been limestone. Limestone is abundantly available, but over 60% of the industry''s CO 2 emissions are caused by transformation of limestone into lime, called "decarbonation". Accordingly, part of the route towards a low carbon concrete-built environment can involve limestone substitution.
