Cleaner concrete production could cut air pollution by 14%

Using cleaner-burning kiln reduces the health costs of air pollution from concrete production by 14%, according to a new study published today (March 24) in Nature Climate Change. Concrete production is responsible for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions, and as populations continue to grow, demand for concrete continues to rise.


industry, whereas truck transport of poured concrete to yards is linked to concrete mixing plants. Emissions of cement and sand dust and noise nuisance are the most important environmental effects of both industries. The water consumption, discharge of waste water, soil contamination and energy consumption are also of concern.

High-Shear mixing requires approx. 4.4kWh/m³. This means, that hydrodynamic impulse cavitation requires approx. 23 times more energy and high shear mixing approx. 3 times more energy than Hielscher ultrasonic devices to provide the same throughput. This leads to significantly higher annual electricity costs.
