Energy-Related Carbon Emissions for Selected Stone, Clay, and Glass Industries, 1994. The cement and lime manufacturing industries emit almost half of the energy-related carbon in the stone, clay, and glass group of industries. The cement and lime industries also emit a significant amount non-energy-related carbon.
Emissions for Selected Stone et al. Industries

Energy-Related Carbon Emissions for the Stone, Clay, and Glass Industry by Source, 1994. Three sources, coal, natural gas, and electricity, account for 91 percent of the energy-related carbon emissions in the stone, clay, and glass industry.
