There are several issues in the production of cement as this article discusses rather well. For example:

"The EPA has created new rules that would require more than 90 percent reductions in mercury and other harmful emissions. The agency estimates it would cost the industry nearly $1 billion to clean up the air pollution, but says the new standards could save up to 2,500 lives and avert thousands of asthma attacks when implemented in 2013."
