The Production and Use of Cement in a Sustainable Context

As cement is an indispensable constituent for all sectors of the building industry, it is produced and used in large quantities, about 175 million tonnes in the European Union and 1.75 billion tonnes worldwide. This paper will briefly deal with the following issues relating to cement: Substitution of fossil fuels with alternative fuels; European standardization and use of alternative materials; development of best available techniques for the abatement of emissions; reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; fire safety of concrete structures; and life cycle assessment of concrete.
