Treatment of Cement System
Full-depth recycling in conjunction with cement stabilization is an increasingly popular method of reconstructing
deteriorated asphalt pavements; in cold regions, cement treatment is especially useful for improving the
strength and durability of frost-susceptible materials. The purpose of this research was to characterize the
properties of cement-treated base materials constructed from reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) and aggregate
materials obtained from several locations in New England. The aggregates and RAP were blended in
approximately equal proportions by weight, and extensive laboratory testing was performed to evaluate the
strength and durability of each blend in the untreated condition and after treatment with various levels of
cement. Testing included determinations of particle-size distributions, moisture-density relationships,
unconfined compressive strengths, and moisture susceptibility classifications for the materials. The results of the
laboratory testing were used to establish design parameters for field test sections constructed in the summer of
2005. Field testing, including stiffness evaluations using a falling-weight deflectometer, was conducted to
characterize the structural properties of both cement-treated and untreated sections subjected to early
trafficking. This research suggests that modest amounts of cement can greatly improve the strength and
durability of base materials, which should in turn increase their resistance to frost damage.
India is one of the major cement producing countries in the world, having as many as 97 major cement plants
and a total installed capacity of about 65 million tonnes per annum which is likely to be of the order of 100
million tonnesper annum by the turn of the century .
The Cement production is an air polluting industry right from mining topackaging of finished product. The
Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB)developed the emission standards for cement industry in 1986. Since
then, the industry is mandatorily required'to install air pollution control equipment toreduce the dust emission
for meeting the specified limit. For sustainabledevelopment. technological improvement of pollution control
equipment is an essential pre-requisite. With the developments in technology, the industryshould not only
meet the regulatory limit but also strive for betterment, where itis feasible.
Keeping these considerations in view, this document has been prepared for dissemination of information on
different types of dust collection system, their advantages and disadvantages, maintenance and operational
problems, techno- economic comparison, payback period and best available pollution control technology in
Indian context. Prevention beingbetter than cure, the report also deals with clean technology aspects including
kiln performance and optimisation, which is the need of the day.
Cement poisoning remedies
There are various poisonous ingredients in cement like industrial glue, tar, industrial solvents, and various
hydrocarbons. These can cause different symptoms like breathing problem, sore and swollen throat, burning of
eyes, ears, lips, tongue, abdominal pain, vomiting, and blood in the stool, irritation, burs or change in the acid
levels of the blood. As soon as you learn that a person has cement poisoning immediate medical assistance
should be given. Till then at home take appropriate care of the person.
Don't force the person to throw up if he is not willing to.
If the chemical is in the contact of eyes or skin wash the area with water at least for 15 to 20 minutes.
