Abstract: Water is the most demanded substance in the world only followed by concrete [1]. Due to
water scarcity crisis in different regions of the world and on the other hand increasing demand
of concrete for housing and infrastructure, it is vital to assess water use in concrete production
[2]. Data is still scarce and highly variable. Our goal is to identify sources of variability and
estimate actual ranges of water footprint of concrete production, which is relevant for decision-
making of the companies and policy makers.
