Production Of Concrete Globally In 2012


CO2 Emissions Profile of the U.S. Cement Industry

Cement production also is a key source of CO2 emissions, due in part to the significant reliance on coal and petroleum coke to fuel the kilns for clinker production. Globally, CO2 emissions from cement production were estimated at 829 MMTCO2 in 2000 7, approximately 3.4% of global CO 2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion and cement production.
