In the context of sustainable development, site selection decisions need to be improved by adopting environmental, economic and social requirements. This study aims to frame sustainable location decisions by conducting a case study of siting a new cement plant in the state of Florida.
Mortality and cancer morbidity among cement production
To analyze overall and cause-specific mortality, especially from cancer, among cement production workers. Results from some epidemiological studies suggested an increased risk of overall mortality and of stomach cancer associated with employment in the cement production, but the presence of a hazard and, if present, the magnitude of a risk have not been precisely quantified. We conducted a

Studies on the Effect of Cement
Mar 16, 2012Most of the recent work on the effects of cement-kiln dust has been confined to Germany and results differ considerably. There appears to be little doubt that naturally deposited dust from certain cement plants is responsible for leaf injury to deciduous and coniferous species and occasionally for death of the latter.

In addition to novel aspects of conventional concrete materials, the journal covers a wide range of composite materials such as fiber-reinforced cement composites, polymer cement composites, polymer impregnated composites, ferrocement, and cement composites containing special aggregate inclusions or waste materials.
Company-driven improvements have led to improved equipment reliability, energy efficiency, and the increased the use of alternative fuels. In fact, alternative fuels, such as industrial byproducts that otherwise would end up in landfills, now represent more than 15 percent of total cement plant energy consumption in the U.S.
Control of HCl Emission from Cement Plants — DTU Research
A number of cement plants face problems in their compliance with the HCl emission regulations. This work is focused on the study of the mechanism of HCl absorption by cement raw meal at conditions similar to those of post-preheater tower units.
CO2 Capture for Cement Technology — DTU Research Database
The potential to generate electricity depends on the scale of the plant, the bigger the production capacity of cement plant the better, with capacity higher than 3400 tons of clinker/day is required to produce captive electricity to meet the demand both from the cement plant operations and from the CO2 capture system operations.
The cement plant is the primary reason for the lone railroad line that runs through the city. Hanson Cement acquired Kaiser Cement for $200 million in 1986. The cement company was renamed Hanson Permanente Cement in 1999. At the time of sale, Kaiser Cement was the 5th largest producer of cement in the entire United States.
Cement and Concrete Research
The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
Liberia: Weah Unveils US$ 14 Million Modern Cement Plant
President Weah described the new cement production plant as an extension of a state-of-art investment in the country which has introduced a technology to the cement industry and brings about inefficiency to the Liberian cement production firm. The plant is valued at US$ 14 million and has the capacity to produce 2,000 bags of cement.
What Has Been the Focus of Sugarcane Research? A
Sep 10, 2019Sugarcane is one of the main crops worldwide, and it has an important impact on environmental issues. A bibliometric mapping analysis of the research on sugarcane was carried out, using data on the titles, abstracts, and keywords of articles published in leading journals and other peer-reviewed documents available in the SCOPUS database from 1858 to 2019 (27 August), and this was
Big Boss Cement Inc.
Big Boss Cement (BBCI) is a Filipino-owned start-up company specializing in production of environment-friendly cement in the country. Our company utilizes advanced technological infrastructure and methods that are capable of producing high-quality and environment-friendly cement.
Do exogenous shocks better leverage the benefits of
This study reports empirical results for existing cement plants in Sichuan Province in China, capturing changes in productivity and environmental performance between 2007 and 2010. During this time period, as the moratorium period of differential environmental regulations came to an end, certain existing plants modernized their production processes after the Great Sichuan Earthquake in 2008.
Dry atmospheric contribution to the plant
The REE distribution in the plants and soils revealed that the most available elements to plants originated dominantly from ophiolites rather than from cement. The contribution of cement industry is significant only in the zone located at about 0.500 to 2 km around the cement factory, whereas the contribution of ophiolites increases with
Utilization of Refuse
In this paper, we explore the possibility of alternative refuse-derived fuel (RDF) from Rasht city for Lowshan Cement Factory. The best choice of RDF for Lowshan cement factory is Fluff RDF. Considering the amount and the type of waste, 168 tons per day Fluff RDF has been calculated.
Impact of fugitive dust emissions from cement plants on
Jun 15, 2006The objective of the study was to assess the impact of fugitive particulate emissions from a cement plant on a nearby community. High volume samplers were used for the determinations of total suspended particulate (TSP) concentrations at representative assessment points situated nearest to the cement site at three existing residential houses.
