Responsible consumption of water


In the cement production cycle, water is essential to reduce the temperature of gases leaving the kiln system and of cement during grinding process, to abate dust in the plants and to cool down engines and machines. The recycling of water previously used in the process, where possible, is always favored.

 In 2020

 

 


29%
 of water used in the cement production cycle comes from water recovery systems

    

    

Rainwater recovery systems allow to reduce water withdrawal from other sources.

     

32%
of water used for concrete production comes from water recovery systems

    

Water is one of concrete main ingredients and therefore it is irreplaceable. However, if properly dosed, it can come from recovery sources, such as rainwater and washing water.
