New Innovation Drives Down Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Cement

Cement is the most ubiquitous manufactured product on planet Earth. It’s typically combined with gravel, sand, and water, then poured into molds laced with steel bars to make steel-reinforced concrete. That concrete is widely used in buildings, bridges, roads, wastewater systems, and virtually every other element of the built environment. The global cement industry is also a prodigious carbon dioxide emitter. For every ton of cement produced, nearly a ton of carbon dioxide is emitted. If the industry were a country, it would be the world’s third largest carbon dioxide emitter, behind China and the US. Efforts are underway to drive down those emissions, but first, let’s take a look at why the industry emits so much carbon.
