Churning out 7-8% of global co2 emissions puts cement companies in the sights of climate activists, investors and anyone looking for an easy headline. Ian Riley, CEO of the WCA, talks with Alex about the cement sector and the active decarbonisation projects that are already underway.
With the industry owning a serious emissions number, there are no shortage of detractors – but it is also a sector that is pursuing a wide range of product & operational decarbonisation projects. Energy efficiency, potential alternative fuels, cementitious additives and next gen technologies like CCUS are all up for discussion. Find out about some of the hottest projects – but also the reality of the policy impediments and opportunities that need resolving.
