Describe on an annotated flow sheet the life cycle of cement as an industrial mineral. You should
describe the mass flows of raw materials, products, and by-products as a basis for the diagram. It
should also include the major processes in the life cycle (e.g. limestone extraction, waste disposal),
and their associated energy/financial costs (where appropriate/available).
I am looking for professional standard presentation of graphics that balances content with
presentation effectiveness. Submissions should be an A3 print-out in landscape
Life cycle means from ‘cradle to cradle’.
Be explicit with the boundaries of your assessment.
You may want to describe the cement industry as a whole (e.g. the UK tonnes of X per year),
or normalise the mass flow (e.g. tonnes of X per tonne of cement)
It is more important to pull together a well defined conceptual model, than trying to
constrain the mass flows.
Use correct symbols were appropriate.
