Construction Demolition Waste from the Author: Mukesh C. Limbachiya. Proceedings of the International Conference organised by the Concrete and Masonry Research Group and held at Kingston University - London at 14-15 September 2004 With the introduction of waste legislation, in the form of regulations and directives, in many parts of the world a significant move towards sustainable waste management is becoming a legal requirement. Emphasis is now being placed on increasing recycling and promoting more sustainable waste management practices, and greater co-ordination between the public, private and independent sectors, and all concerned with the management of waste and reusable materials. However, sustainable waste management entails complex technological, environmental, social, cultural and economic issues. This, together with technological advances in recycling, means the waste sector is facing enormous challenges in developing suitable waste management and recycling strategies. It is therefore necessary to share and explore existing expertise; to review and discuss the challenges in order to identify opportunities for improving waste management and recycling and promoting sustainable resource use.

Cement Replacement Materials from the Author: Ali Akbar Ramezanianpour. The aim of this book is to present the latest findings in the properties and application of Supplementary Cementing Materials and blended cements currently used in the world in concrete. Sustainability is an important issue all over the world. Carbon dioxide emission has been a serious problem in the world due to the greenhouse effect. Today many countries agreed to reduce the emission of CO2. Many phases of cement and concrete technology can affect sustainability. Cement and concrete industry is responsible for the production of 7% carbon dioxide of the total world CO2 emission. The use of supplementary cementing materials (SCM), design of concrete mixtures with optimum content of cement and enhancement of concrete durability are the main issues towards sustainability in concrete industry.

The Role Of Cement Industry In The Economic Development Of Pakistan from the Author: Najabat Ali. The objective of the research study is to evaluate the contribution of cement industry in the economic development of Pakistan. The study is basically a historical research and it covers all the developments made in the cement industry of Pakistan since its inception. The study reveals the importance of the cement sector for any economy by highlighting the major contributions of the industry in the economic development of Pakistan. The contribution of economic development of cement industry in the economic development is measured by the value addition of cement sector to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), employment opportunities created by the sector, receipts from exports, taxes paid to government and all revenues generated by the industry. The study reveals that the cement industry plays a key role in the economic development of Pakistan. The contribution of cement industry is very positive for not only the manufacturing sector but also for the overall economic development of Pakistan. The cement industry of Pakistan used to be a very tiny industry but it grew with the passage of time and ultimately it entered in the global market. The industry contributes in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), it creates employment opportunities for thousands of people and it creates huge revenue for the government in the form of taxes. The cement industry of Pakistan attracted not only domestic investors but also foreign investors. At the end of the study, a critical evaluation of the cement industry, however discloses some major weaknesses of the industry.

Sustainable Development from the Author: Susan Baker. The current focus on sustainable development opens up debates surrounding our relationship with the natural world, about what constitutes social progress and about the character of development, both in the Global North and the Global South. The promotion of sustainable futures is taking on a new urgency in the context of climate change and biodiversity loss. This concise and accessible text explores how the international community is responding to the challenge of sustainable development. It also investigates the prospect for, and barriers to, the promotion of sustainable development in high-consumption societies of the industrialised world, from the USA and the EU to the economies of transition in Eastern and Southern Asia. In Sustainable Development Baker considers the global impact of China’s industrial boom as well as how Chinese investments are shaping the prospects for sustainable development on the African continent. This global coverage is balanced by investigating how local action, ranging from the transition towns movement in the UK to the Green Belt movement in Kenya, can contribute to the pursuit of sustainable development. The second edition has been extensively revised and updated and benefits from the addition of three new chapters: sustainable development in China; the governance of sustainable development; and sustainable production and consumption. Climate change and biodiversity management have also been expanded into full chapters. Providing an up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the issues surrounding the promotion of sustainable development, this unique, internationally-focused book combines a strong conceptual analysis with wide ranging empirical focus and a wealth of case material. Including summary points and suggestions for further reading, as well as web resources and an extensive bibliography, it is ideal for students, scholars and researchers in the fields of environmental sciences, politics, geography, sociology and development studies.

The Role Of Ecological Chemistry In Pollution Research And Sustainable Development from the Author: Ali Mufit Bahadir. Sustainable Development has become the leading concept of the 21 century. It describes a development, which agrees with the needs of the present generation but does not endanger the chances of the coming generations to satisfy also their needs. “Sustainable development” has become an important general goal for all fields of life like economy, ecology and social balance. The development and shaping of our future has been discussed internationally like on the summits of the Conferences in Rio and in Johannesburg. But this is also a topic on national base in various countries. Leading authorities in various fields of economy and politics have also accepted this concept. Although the concept of sustainable development has been generally accepted, there are still problems how to achieve and evaluate these general goals. It is clear that the definitions about the prime needs vary from man to man, from country to country and from continent to continent. But pollution does not respect national borders. Therefore, it is necessary to develop the politics of economy, ecology and social demands by a synergistic way that they are strengthened by each other. If it is not possible to stop tendencies, which threaten the future quality of life, the cost demands of societies will dramatically increase and negative tendencies will become irreversible.
