Join this conversation with David Boyd of Carbon Re to find out about the changes on the horizon for European CO2 trading and its impact on the tech & innovation plans and budgets cement companies are needing to put in place.
David Boyd from Carbon Re joins Alex to talk about how cement manufacturers will need to step up to the changes in ETS rules that lie ahead. Cement producers have so far avoided significant negative impact of carbon taxes on their CO2 output as their free allowances have largely balanced their typical average emissions – they only have to buy credits if they emit more than average, and they can sell credits if they emit less than usual.
But changes on the horizon will mean that cement companies big and small will need to invest in a range of technologies to avoid costly carbon costs. We talk about the emerging regs, what David sees the response from industry being and talks about the role that their own technology can play in improving cement’s CO2 performance.
