    Abstract. The article is devoted to the analysis of ways for solving the problem of reducing greenhouse gases in energy-intensive cement production and various types of concretes in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The problem of the greenhouse effect today is a manifestation of the global environmental crisis throughout the world. The production of cement is growing rapidly in the republic, and the demand for it will increase continuously. Cement producers are also one of the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions, as are thermal power plants. A high scale of energy consumption and a large number of emissions into the environment is characterized by the production of cement, which includes multi-stage mechanical high-temperature processing of raw materials. High energy consumption and significant discharges to the air atmosphere of greenhouse gases are also characterized by the production of reinforced concrete structures. The calculation of greenhouse gas emissions at cement manufacturing enterprises has outlined the main directions for reducing the amount of greenhouse gases at cement manufacturing enterprises. The calculation of heat treatment of reinforced concrete structures with natural gas was made, which indicated: reduction of emissions at the stage of decarbonization and reduction of emissions in the fuel consumption of cements, reduction of emissions at the stage of heat treatment due to reduction of energy consumption spent in the manufacture of reinforced concrete products and structures. The authors proposed effective ways of solving this problem by means of renewable energy sources. The development and implementation of innovative technologies that promote environmental protection today play an important role in terms of sustainable development. It is necessary to introduce new environmentally effective technologies that make it possible to ensure the interaction between economic development and environmental protection at all levels. Modern development of production must correspond to the state of the environment. The introduction of environmentally friendly technologies today must effectively solve environmental problems, providing a new attitude to nature, coordinating production and natural processes in a coherent system, managed by people.
