Carbon Dioxide emissions from cement pro­ duction currently represent about 5% of anthro­ pogenic global CO2 emissions. As a result, the cement industry is continuously exploring ways to address Climate Change by undertaking ini­ tiatives that reduce the carbon footprint of ce­ ment’s production and use. Carbon footprint Given the available technology, there are four distinct “reduction levers” available to the ce­ ment industry to reduce carbon emissions. These carbon reduction levers have also been used to model the future evolution of the Ce­ ment Sector’s carbon emissions in both CSI’s Sectoral Approach Project and IEA’s and WBCSD Cement Technology Roadmap. Cement plants generate carbon dioxide emis­ sions, thus contributing to the greenhouse ef­ fect and climate change. There are both direct and indirect emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). In brief these levers are: Energy efficiency i.e. deployment of state of the art e...
