China is the largest cement-producing and cement-consuming country in the world today. The cement industry plays an important role in emissions of many air pollutants in China. This study estimates the emissions of major air pollutants from cement production based on information on the development of production technologies and tightening emission standards in China's cement industry. The analysis shows that with the replacement of old shaft kilns by precalciner kilns, there is an opportunity to reduce particular matter (PM) emissions through the implementation of stricter emission standards and promotion of high-performance PM control technologies.

Keywords:   cement, air pollutants, cement production, kilns, PM emissions, PM controls
