Utilization of Industrial Wastes in the Production of Blended Concrete CHAPTER 3 OBJECTIVE OF THE EXPERIMENTATION The production of cement is highly energy intensive. Many natural raw materials will have to be used for the production of cement. Also it is found that enormous environmental pollution occurs during the production of cement. It is estimated that about one ton of carbon – di –oxide will be released into the atmosphere during the production of one ton of cement. This released carbon – di – oxide not only pollutes the air but also results in global warming. The concrete technologists and environmentalist are seriously thinking about the ways of reducing

Unformatted text preview: the environmental pollution and global warming caused due to production of cement. Therefore any steps, which suggest the replacement of cement by some alternative eco friendly materials, are a welcoming method both for concrete technologists as well as for environmentalists. Few decades back it was found that some of the industrial wastes like fly ash, silica fume, blast furnace slag, etc show some cementitious and pozzolanic properties when come in contact with moisture. These pozzolanic materials, to some extent replace the cement in the production of concrete....
