The question which is rapidly growing and there is not any single exact answer for this question, but as we always used to write informative blogs. So, we have also had the answer for Energy Use and Emissions in the Cement Industry. Okay, without wasting your much valuable time let me tell you. Are you talking about the cement or the concrete? well, most people think that both are the same thing but no, however, both are different from each other. Let me clear you, cement is used for mixing with water, gravel, stones, sand to form concrete and concrete is the final mixture which is used to make buildings and all. We hope you got our point.
You can also say cement as a glue which holds water, gravel, sand, stones and makes concrete. For knowing that, how much energy use in the cement industry or production of cement keep on reading our blog. There are numerous cement industries, who use the different procedure of making cement or each single cement production process requires a different amount of energy. But genuinely in the production of cement, the cement industry consumes about 12 per cent to 15 percent of energy. Cement manufacturing is the simple process, which begins with the mining and then grinding the raw material and in war material include limestone and clay, which convert into a smooth powder after mining and grinding which is called raw meal. After that, this raw meal used to heat at the temperature of about 1450 C, to form cement. This process requires 12 per cent to 15 percent of energy.
Similarly, the different procedure of making steel requires a different amount of energy in it. But for making a huge amount of concrete for making a huge building, it requires a huge amount of energy. So, many of the biggest cement industries who make the cement in higher amounts are continuously working on the project called, how to improve energy efficiency in the production of cement in a higher amount. Cement also plays an important role in or economic development of a country. Let me tell you, India is the largest producer of cement after China.
There is a huge amount of energy used in the cement industry and different procedures require a different amount of energy in the cement industry. Now, we are going to talk about the emission in the cement industry. Whether it is any procedure of making cement, in every single production of cement there is always one gas release directly or indirectly which is called Greenhouse Gas Emission. In making cement when we heat limestone and clay at 1450 C, CO2 is released which is called CO2 emission. In the emission, cement takes place with the help of a chemical process called calcination and calcination take place when limestone, which is made up of calcium carbonate, is heated at high temperature and this calcium carbonate break down into calcium oxide and CO2 at this stage 50 per cent of all emission release from cement production. If we say, indirectly emission is produced by the heating of fossil fuels at a high temperature. Just the same in the production of electricity but it releases about 40 percent of cement emission and then the electricity is ready to use and let me tell you another thing is that final transportation of cement releases 5 per cent to 10 percent of emission. So, we hope you liked our blog, and we also hope that you got the answer to the question called, Energy Use and Emissions in the Cement Industry.
