Abstract for the presentation:

Beside direct process water, large amounts of energy is required for the production of steel, cement and glass resulting in an indirect water footprint of these widely used construction materials. Furthermore, the effluent of some processes contain polluting substances resulting in a grey water footprint. For this research the water footprint concept is applied to determine the blue and grey water footprint of steel, cement and glass.
