A major component of concrete is cement, which has its own environmental and social impacts and contributes largely to those of concrete. The cement industry is one of the primary producers of carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas
The cement industry immensely relies on construction and building activities. Concrete and mortar are two of the most common products in the construction industry that use cement as a major ingredient. Any escalation in the global construction or building activities will spur the market largely. Other factors that could influence the rise in the worldwide market include escalating number of

GST Impact on The Cement Industry The cement industry is a significant input to the infrastructure sector. Currently, the tax rate on cement industry is between 27 per cent and 32 per cent. The tax rate for the cement sector is required to decline at 18-20 percent under the GST regime.
The main objective of this research is studying the impact of HRM practices on employee performance in the context of cement industry in Bangladesh. For this purpose the researchers have tried to investigate impact of the various components of HRM practices on employee performance of a sample of 160 employees from seven cement companies listed in the Dhaka Stock Exchange. The data were
The production of 1 metric ton (t) of cement releases an estimated 0.73 to 0.99 t CO 2 /t cement depending on the clinker-per-cement ratio and other factors. A major difference between the cement industry and most other industries is that fuel consumption is not the dominant driver of CO 2 emissions from cement production.

The cement industry uses around 5% of the coal produced globally every year. 11 While this is much less than the steel or power industries, coal remains the largest single component in the overall fuel mix used by the cement industry, using on the order of 330–350 Mt of coal per year.
01/12/2013· The objective of the study is to identify the key strategies for successful implementation of JIT i-e just-in-time management philosophy on cement industry of Pakistan by using survey responses from four hundred operations’ managers of cement industry.
Global production of Portland cement clinker stands at a little over 3.5 billion tonnes, and consequently the global cement industry is responsible for 6–7% of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. The industry recognises the need to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions, and there have been a number of technological advances in recent years that have helped to reduce the carbon footprint of
