LCA of cement - Appropedia: The sustainability wiki

10/05/2021  For cement, a cradle to grave assessment is especially difficult because cement has so many end uses, and each use has a unique, often complex life-cycle. Therefore, the assessments reviewed here are "cradle-to-gate" studies. These cradle-to-gate assessments evaluate impacts of producing cement from the raw material extraction process to the packaging and shipping process.

Sustainability For the Concrete Bridge Engineering Community

Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is an environmental analysis and considers the many stages of a bridge’s life. An LCA for a concrete bridge would include such items as the extraction of natural resources to produce the cement and aggregate, the manufacturing process (whether cast-in-place or precast), and the decommissioning or reuse of the structure. LCA also assesses the environmental impact ...
