Cement has ancient origins, and its earliest forms were used by the Egyptians and Romans.

In Italy, community rules were introduced to classify different types of cement according to composition and strength.[Resinsystemitalia]

Italian cement and concrete industries have made important progress toward environmental sustainability, investing in innovative technologies to reduce CO₂ emissions. However, there are still challenges ahead, such as improving the rate of heat substitution with recovered fuels. Nevertheless, there have been improvements in environmental performance, such as the use of biomass in fuels and the reduction of pollutant emissions.[Esg360]

Gypsum has also been a widely used material since ancient times because of its versatile characteristics. Over time, gypsum was distributed in multi-layered gypsum paper sheets and later gypsum board was invented in the United States in 1916. Gypsum boards come in different sizes and types, such as waterproof, fireproof, thermal, acoustic, and curved gypsum board. They can be used for thermal and acoustic insulation and to create interior and exterior structural elements.[Peetergaians]
