This project was initiated to obtain a comprehensive assessment of the cement industry and its environmental research needs. This report contains a profile of the U.S. cement industry; an analysis of the cement manufacturing processes; a discussion of waste stream characteristics and controls; and an assessment of research needs for the cement industry. Recommendations for further investigation were proposed in several areas: waste kiln dust management, nitrogen oxides control, use of kilns as waste incinerators, and sulfur oxides control.
