The rise in construction and building activities is the primary growth driver for the global green cement market. The demand for these types of cement is being accelerated by uptake of alternative fuels derived from waste materials such as foundry sand, used oils, sewage sludge, solid recovered fuels, filter cakes, animal meals and fly ash. The urgent need to cut down carbon emissions is encouraging usage of these fuels. The market is also gaining an impetus from governments, which are promoting green architecture to ensure sustainable building, which is certified under Leader in Energy and Environment Design (LEED).
