Manufacturing of cement requires heavy, low value, and weight losing material. It is primarily a raw material oriented industry. Limestone is the main raw material. The location of a cement plant depends mostly on the limestone deposits. The other raw materials are seashells, slag from steel plants and slag from fertilizer, silica, and aluminium are important ingredients. Gypsum is necessary to regulate the setting time of cement.
