Paper Abstract

The presence of natural radionuclides in raw materials used in cement manufacturing was determined by using analytical methods. The used Raw materials are limestone, clay, slag, and gypsum, which be used with different concentrations in cement production. Different analytical techniques such as Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) technique, Gamma spectroscopy, Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP) spectroscopy, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF), in addition to X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) for phase identification of a crystalline material. The obtained data show that there is no significant radiological hazards arising from using the present cement components in the different applications. XRD data shows that there is no crystalline structures in the raw materials.
