New approach suggests path to emissions-free cement

2019-9-16  Ordinary Portland cement, the most widely used standard variety, is made by grinding up limestone and then cooking it with sand and clay at high heat, which is produced by burning coal. The process produces carbon dioxide in two different ways: from the burning of the coal, and from gases released from the limestone during the heating.

CO2 Emissions Profile of the U.S. Cement Industry

2015-9-10  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. In addition to combustion-related emissions, cement production also is a source of process-related emissions resulting from the release of CO2 during the calcination of limestone.

Portland-Limestone Cement: An Important Step Toward

Because concrete is the most widely used building product, it is often cited as the product that embodies the most carbon dioxide, primarily due to the cement manufacturing process. Carbon dioxide emissions from cement manufacture result from calcination of limestone, which represents about 60% of the CO2, emissions, and burning of fossil fuels ...

2021-10-12  The main raw material for cement is limestone. Quicklime is also required in huge quantities in the pulp and steel industries. In the production of cement and quicklime, emissions are generated for two reasons. At present, the production takes place at temperatures above 1000°C, and this releases emissions into the atmosphere.

2021-10-18  “A switch to Portland-limestone cement, followed by a substitution of 35 to 40 per cent slag would cut the carbon footprint of the resulting concrete by about half,” says Hooton. Hooton says that one of the concerns about using slag is that, at high replacement levels, it slows down the time it takes for the concrete to gain strength.
