Sustainable Development
  • Sustainable Development is
  • development that meets the needs of the
    present without compromising the ability of
    future generations to meet their own needs.
  • Source Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem
    Bruntland 1987 UN World Commission on
    Environment and Development
  • To achieve sustainability, it means that
    corporate decisions should consider the impact on
    the triple-bottom-line
  • The triple-bottom-line asks
  • What is the Social, Economic and Environmental
    impact of the decision?

  • Countries that ratify this protocol commit
    to reduce their emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2)
    and five other greenhouse gases, or engage in
    emissions trading if they maintain or increase
    emissions of these gases.

The Kyoto Protocol now covers more than 160
countries globally and over 55 of global
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Raw Material Storage and Grinding
  • Inside storage to control dust if needed.
  • Kiln exhaust gases used in grinding raw materials
  • Sulphur and mercury captured from gases by
    grinding mill

20
Kiln Exhaust Gases
  • Heat transfer preheats feed to kiln.
  • Gases then used in raw grinding.
  • Exhaust gases then cleaned in precipitator before
    being emitted.

21
Continuous Emission Monitoring
  • Continuous monitoring of all major emissions.
  • Process controls optimized to maintain emission
    standards.

22
Environmental Management System
  • The Environmental Management System (EMS) is a
    system to formalize how we approach environmental
    issues at the plant.
  • Created in 2003 as a complete policy, procedure,
    and training manual for Delta Plant employees.
  • The EMS is a living document that expands and
    change with time.
  • A voluntary initiative

23
Environmental Aspects
  • All physical and operational aspects of the
    operation that could affect the environment have
    been identified and controlled
  • Dust emissions
  • 60 dust collectors 2 electrostatic
    precipitators
  • Wash truck for dust suppression
  • Covered storage
  • Main stack emissions
  • Continuous emissions monitoring
  • Training and good operating practices
  • Evaluation procedure for waste-based materials
  • Spills / Stormwater management
  • Single discharge for all stormwater
  • pH / TSS treatment
  • Training and emergency preparedness

Triple Bottom Line Broad Appeal
SOCIAL INCREASED QUALITY OF LIFE Healthy places
to live work Pedestrian transit
friendly Conducive to human interaction Reinforce
peoples connection to natural built
environments
ENVIRONMENTAL SAVING THE EARTH Potential to
gather own water energy Solar orientation
downsize HVAC Treat storm wastewater Use
smaller footprint, minimize habitat
disruption Emphasize non-toxic, regional,
sustainably harvested materials High levels fresh
air, advanced thermal comfort
ECONOMIC GOOD INVESTMENT Slightly higher
initial cost advantages offset quickly Increase
in value more than conventional buildings Cost
less to operate maintain Increase worker
productivity Attract retain tenants Hold value
for longer periods

Whats a Green Building
  • Semiahmoo Library and RCMP Facility
  • British Columbia, Canada
  • LEED Silver
  • Uses concrete
  • Structural design
  • Interior design
  • Exterior design

34
Whats a Sustainable Community?
Rather than being a fixed thing, a sustainable
community is continually adjusting to meet the
social economic needs of its residents while
preserving the environments ability to support
it. (Bridger Luloff, 2001)
35
Tell the Product Story
  • Bring forward examples for promotion
  • Pervious, thermal mass, high volume flyash, etc.
  • Demonstrations of sustainable uses
  • Talk it up
  • Look for promotion
  • opportunities

36
Customer Decision Making
  • Rating Systems
  • Rating Systems are being used as a means of
    differentiation and demonstration of commitment
    to social conscience.
  • Communication
  • Marketing - we need to communicate how concrete
    can address the needs of these audiences.
  • Pick up is coming from engineering
    architectural communities.
  • Education
  • Post secondary institutions are responding to
    market needs. New programs and curriculum
    continues to develop spanning many disciplines.

LEED Canada
37
Rating Systems
Industry Lobby Efforts are important needed
  • LEED
  • Leadership in Energy Environmental Design
  • New commercial construction and major renovation
    projects (LEED-NC)
  • Existing building operations (LEED-EB)
  • Commercial interiors projects (LEED-CI)
  • Core and shell projects (LEED-CS)
  • Homes (LEED-H)
  • Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND)
  • Green Globes
  • Local Government Legislation
  • Guides Resources

The RIGHT Numbers
  • Canada contributes 2 of the worlds GHG
    emissions
  • Canadian cement industry contributed 1.486
    (2003) of Canadas total GHG emissions down
    from 1.54 in 1990. Actual CO2 numbers are
    slightly higher - is a part of total GHG
  • 60 of CO2 comes from process - calcination of
    limestone. 40 from energy use - fossil fuels
  • Canada 0.91 t of CO2/t of cement
  • Canada approx. 0.75 of CO2/t of cementious
    product
  • Buildings 31 of total Canadian secondary
    energy use
  • Buildings 15 of total Canadian GHG emissions
  • Buildings (3 billion tons annually) of raw
    materials use globally
