How to Make Concrete Blocks

You will require cement, sand, gravel, and water for making the concrete mix. Put the cement, sand, and gravel in the container at a ratio of 1:2:3. Start mixing water in the container and stir the mixture continuously with a rod. Pour water until the concrete mixture become pliable enough to pour in the mold.

How concrete is made

The Manufacturing Process The manufacture of concrete is fairly simple. First, the cement (usually Portland cement) is prepared. Next, the other ingredients—aggregates (such as sand or gravel), admixtures (chemical additives), any necessary fibers, and water—are mixed together with the cement to form concrete. The concrete is then shipped

Cement

The clinker may be immediately ground to cement or stored in stockpiles for later use. In the semidry process the raw materials, in the form of nodules containing 10 to 15 percent water, are fed onto a traveling chain grate before passing to the shorter rotary kiln. Hot gases coming from the kiln are sucked through the raw nodules on the grate

Emissions from the Cement Industry

09/05/2012The direct emissions of cement occur through a chemical process called calcination. Calcination occurs when limestone, which is made of calcium carbonate, is heated, breaking down into calcium oxide and CO 2. This process accounts for ~50 percent of all emissions from cement production.

Cement Production Process

Cement Production Process Clinker and cement production is an intensive process in terms of natural raw material and energy input. Limestone (primary source of calcium carbonate CaCO 3 ) and clay (primary source of silica SiO 2, alumina Al 2 O 3 and iron oxide Fe 2 O 3 ) are typically mined in company-owned quarries and pre-blended to a target chemical material composition.

Cement production and use. One reason why the carbon emissions are so high is because cement has to be heated to very high temperatures in order for clinker to form. A major culprit of this is alite (Ca 3 SiO 5), a mineral in concrete that cures within hours of pouring and is therefore responsible for much of its initial strength. However
