A survey that included 60% of the cement-manufacturing plants in the United States was made to determine the fate of dust collected from the gases emanating from cement kilns. Because of high alkali content, large quantities of the dust cannot be returned to the cement-making process. A survey was made of the literature in the United States and Europe pertaining to handling, reclaiming, and utilizing the collected dust. Abstracts of 71 references are included in the Appendix. Acid neutralization capacity and potash content make the dust valuable for application to farmland, and the potential market for agricultural use alone could consume all of the waste dust that is now being discarded.
