Cement Emissions

According to the IPCC, Carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted during the cement production process represents the most important source of non-energy industrial process of global carbon dioxide emissions. 

Cement production accounts for around 5% of total global industrial and energy CO2 emissions (CSI). 

Carbon dioxide is a by-product of a chemical conversion process used in the production of clinker, a component of cement, in which limestone (CaCO3) is converted to lime (CaO)1.
