Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production in Cement Industry

The cement industry is the building block of the nation’s construction industry. Few construction projects can take place without utilizing cement somewhere in the design. The cement industry is considered very material and energy intensive, so it does need a thorough study with a focus on resource efficiency, cleaner production and reduction of harmful emissions. The RECP Centre expert developed this manual and focused on the key issues and challenges in this industry. He emphasized on basic production stages, using cement waste as alternative fuel, implementinf RECP concepts, highlighted BATs, etc.

The publication has been designed for all those dealing with cement and construction industries.

This material has been prepared within the framework of the Project “Promoting the Adaptation and Adoption of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) through the Establishment and Operation of a Cleaner Production Centre (CPC) in Ukraine”. The Project is implemented in Ukraine by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the national Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production Centre (RECPC). The Governments of Switzerland and the Republic of Austria are the donors of the Project.
