A study by the World Bank shows cement seals can reduce emissions of methane and carbon dioxide by up to a third.
The report was released on Monday in a new edition of the World Development Indicators.
The study is a collaboration between the World Resources Institute and the World Economic Forum.
In its latest edition, the report estimates that by 2030, cement sealings in the global cement supply chain could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent.
The world is currently locked into the Paris Agreement, which aims to reduce emissions by 26 per cent by 2025.
The World Bank estimates that cement seals could contribute about 3.5 million tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually to this reduction.
It says that the main greenhouse gas reduction potential of cement sealants would be offset by the use of more efficient methods of transportation.
The organisation says that cement seal-based technologies are expected to contribute up to 9.5 per cent of global carbon reduction by 2030.
The main reasons for cement seal production is the need for water-saving measures.
But the report suggests that the production of cement seals is not the only way to help mitigate climate change.
Cement sealers, which are applied to cement structures such as concrete and masonry, are considered an efficient and cost-effective method of controlling CO2 emissions.
The paper also notes that cement-based technology is often used to prevent leakage of water into aquifers.
Culture and the environmentIn the paper, the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) said that a combination of cement and bio-friendly technologies, such as rainwater harvesting, are an effective solution to the climate change issue.WWF has launched a campaign called Cement for the Planet, which is a campaign that aims to encourage people to recycle their waste, which can help mitigate global CO2.
The WWF’s Dr Daniel Schoenert said: “Cement is a natural material and it’s a highly polluting material, but it’s not a sustainable material.
It has the potential to be recycled in the future.”WWF is also working with companies that produce cement seal, such the Australian cement company AECOM, to ensure that the use is sustainable.
In a statement, AECom said:”We have been working with WWF to develop a cement-free alternative to cement, a system that can be installed in concrete masonry to reduce the need to use cement sealant.”AECOM’s approach is to develop an innovative and environmentally-friendly solution that can also be used for other types of buildings.
