    Even though cement and concrete destroy and cover up land, the main concern in the production of these materials is the energy consumption.  Builinggreen.com states that “cement production is one of the most energy intensive of all industrial manufacturing processes.”  Other environmental issues surrounding cement and concrete production are the CO2 levels that are emitted as well as other forms of air pollution, such as dust.  There is also a lot of water pollution and solid waist as a rsult of the production of these items.

    One problem with concrete is it can last up to 50,000 years. It does not break down easily in the environment, and therefore prevents natural habitat from recurring for a very long time. However, it is recyclable. After production, it can be reused and remolded in numerous ways.
