Cement and concrete are central to our modern world. However, around seven percent of global CO2 emissions are currently from cement manufacture, and two-thirds of this, amounting to 1.6 Giga-tonnes in 2019, are process emissions, which cannot be easily abated without carbon capture technologies. The sector has recently announced it is committed to achieving carbon neutral concrete in line with global climate targets, and is becoming increasingly active in investigating and developing carbon capture solutions.
Join the CEM CCUS Initiative and their partners from the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) for a webinar on the role of CCUS for the Cement Sector, on Thursday 21 January 2021, at 14:00 CET. Speakers will discuss the opportunity that carbon capture can bring to the sustainability of cement manufacture, and how governments can ensure an enabling framework to drive projects forward.
