China's Concrete Consumption is Staggering
China's raw material consumption is mind boggling. On top of being the largest consumer of coal and iron ore, China consumes 60% of the world's concrete. The figure comes at no surprise with the sharp rise in megacities such as Chongqing and industrial projects like the Three Gorges Dam. What is shocking is the comparison Microsoft genius Bill Gates made in an article earlier this year. China has consumed more concrete in the past 3 years than the United States has used throughout the entire 20th century. That's 6.6 gigatons!
This series of photos taken of Shanghai's business district is an example of the country's massive growth in recent years.
