Abstract Share this page

Climate change is considered as major environmental challenge for the world. Emissions from cement manufacturing are one of the major contributors in global warming and climate change. Cement manufacturing is a highly energy intensive process, which involves intensive fuel consumption for clinker making and resulting in emissions. Beside Fuel consumption, the calcining process is a major source of emissions such as NOx, SOx, CO2, particulate matters etc. In this paper, the role of cement industry is reviewed in causing impact on environment and health. It describes the cement production process and its emission sources followed by overview of emissions and their environmental and health impacts. Review study has focused on emission generation from clinker production and excluded the emissions due to indirect energy (electricity, transportation, supply chain etc.) used for cement operations. This review observed a comprehensive literature in term of peer reviewed journals, industry sector reports, websites etc on cement industry and associated emissions and health impacts.
