Using synthetic or recycled gypsum board can significantly reduce several of these impacts. Synthetic gypsum accounts for approximately 20 percent of U.S. raw gypsum use and is made from the byproducts of manufacturing and energy generating processes, primarily from desulfurization of coal power plant exhaust gases.
plant growth. Gypsum amendments can also improve the physical properties of some soils . Such amendments promote soil aggregation and thus can help prevent dispersion of soil parti cles, reduce surface crust formation, promote seedling emergence, and increase water infiltration
In 2014, these three regions accounted for 96% of global synthetic gypsum supply, with Asia alone accounting for 65%. By 2027, Asia will account for 73% of global supply. According to Smithers Pira, of synthetic gypsum that is utilised, 93% is used in plasterboard production, with only 3% used in cement, and 2% used as a soil conditioner.
The 2nd Global SynGyp Conference on synthetic gypsum has successfully taken place, in Düsseldorf on 30 31 March 2017, with 80 delegates from 20 countries in attendance. 16 papers were presented at the event, alongside an exhibition of syntheic gypsum related products and services.
