Cement is a general term for all types of adhesives, but in a more specific sense, it refers to the binders used in building and civil engineering projects. These cements are made of finely powdered powders that, when combined with water, solidify to form a solid mass.
Hydration, the chemical reaction of the cement compounds with water to produce minute crystals or a gel-like substance with a large surface area, is what causes setting and hardening.
Constructional cements, which will even set and solidify under water, are frequently referred to as hydraulic cements because of their hydrating qualities.
The Italy Cement market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
Critical analysis of the Life Cycle Assessment of the Italian cement industry.The construction industry’s interest in environmental issues has increased more rapidly in recent years, highlighting the need to encourage both better use of renewable resources and a more responsible use of non-renewable resources.
The need for greener approaches in the field of construction engineering is thus demonstrated by an increasing number of environmental documents and institutional acts on the subject.
Once the upstream and core phases of these processes have been distinguished, the goal is to assess the environmental impact of the Italian grey cement and clinker industry.
Composition, requirements, and compliance standards for common cements are described in “Cement – Part 1.” In accordance with the Product Category Rules (PCR) 2010:09 version 2.1 “Cement” and the standard EN 15804 “Sustainability of construction works, environmental product declarations,
core rules for the product category of construction products,” the environmental assessment of these industrial processes was carried out using a Life Cycle Analysis (LCA).
The findings made it possible to create the first Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for the cement industry that has been made public by the International EPD System.
The findings analysed showed that among the several phases involved in the manufacturing of these materials, the core phase is responsible for the majority of greenhouse emissions as well as the potential for eutrophication and acidification.
It was also determined that the manufacturing of cement is mostly to blame for the following environmental effect categories: the total amount of electricity needed for various industrial operations, the output flows of parts and materials for recycling, and the biogenic CO2 emissions.
The outcomes demonstrate the advantages of using Best Available Techniques (BAT) for the “Production of Cement, Lime, and Magnesium Oxide” business.
