‘Most of us do not think about cement and concrete and the vital role they play in our modern lives, we take them for granted,’ says Brian Gilmore, Sustainability Manager with Cement Manufacturers Ireland, the business association in Ibec that represents Ireland’s cement industry. ‘In fact many people confuse cement and concrete,’ Brian added. ‘We have recently launched a short animated video that will hopefully help to explain how cement is made and how it is the active ingredient in concrete.’ ‘After water, concrete is the most consumed material on earth.’
The video, which is available on the Associations website, www.cement.ie, is the first in an educational series planned by Cement Manufacturers Ireland. The videos will assist students of Architecture and Engineering, and the general public, to gain a better understanding of these construction materials and how the industry is investing and innovating to improve performance and deliver a comfortable, energy efficient, and low carbon built environment.
