Abstract
Cement production is one of the vastest industries all over the world which release many kinds of substances into air, soil and water that cause significant effects on human health and global warming, this industry uses many resource and energy to produce one of the most useful products in the construction sector. In this study, we used Simapro and LCA method to analysis the cement lifecycle impacts on human health, ecosystem quality and resource depletion. From the analysis released emissions are obtained per separate impact category.
