IAAPC- Vegetation for Cement Dust Control and Mine Reclamation – Saxena 1

The Indian cement industry was inherently known for its pollution. Today its environmental performance has now assumed an important significance due to the availability of technology, advanced mining practices, and reclamation. The cement manufacturing process deteriorates the environment from mining of limestone to the finished product. Vegetation not only has a unique ability to harvest solar energy through photosynthesis but also play a vital role in improving the aesthetic environment and air quality. The appropriateness of sustainable mining, air quality, and the role of plants for better ambient air quality as well as its impact on plants have been discussed.
