China to Phase Out Cement Mixers in Major Cities to Improve Energy Efficiency – Xinhua

From Xinhua:

China’s 127 major cities plan to ban cement mixing at sites in an effort to protect the environment and reduce energy consumption, the Ministry of Commerce announced on Wednesday.

Jiang Zengwei, vice minister of the MOC, said the country will phase out bag-packed cement for concrete mixers by promoting the production and use of bulk cement and dried mortar, which can be directly used as building materials when only mixed with water. The move will improve energy efficiency and reduce pollution and noises in the cities, he said. [Full Text]
