China’s huge cement industry might eventually reach net-zero emissions

Cement production is a significant source of human-induced carbon emissions. China accounts for more than half of the world’s annual cement production. The industry’s carbon emissions are estimated to be about 7% of the country’s total emissions. However, the alkaline compounds in cement materials can slowly absorb carbon dioxide (CO2) from the surrounding environment through mineral carbonation, […]
