The main constituent of concrete, cement, during its production has a substantial effect on the environment by releasing carbon dioxide (CO2). Similarly, extensive mining of stone to produce coarse aggregates creates many new fault lines in the natural rocky terrain, making it prone to earthquakes and causing diversion of flow of water from its natural course. Due to excessive mining of sand, the river course is being changed, leading to floods.
