Baker Hughes joins WCA as an Associate Corporate Member

World Cement Association (WCA) has announced that global energy technology company, Baker Hughes, has become the latest addition to its international community, joining as an Associate Corporate Member.

Baker Hughes operates in over 120 countries, designing, manufacturing and deploying innovative technologies and services that help make energy safer, cleaner and more efficient. Specialist capabilities include areas such as emissions management, hydrogen, carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS), and energy storage, as well as expertise in helping industrial companies with their energy transition journeys as they move towards net-zero. Baker Hughes works across the entire energy value chain and in key industrial markets, including cement.

“Reducing the impact of energy usage is one of the most important levers we have when it comes to cutting the emissions from cement manufacture and making net-zero a reality,” explains Ian Riley, CEO at WCA. “We are therefore especially pleased to be welcoming Baker Hughes, a global leader in this field, to our membership, and look forward to working alongside them to share the latest thinking and best practice with the international cement community.”

“Industrial sectors must prioritise achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, and as one of the hardest to abate sectors, the cement industry is no exception,” says Uwem Ukpong, Executive Vice President, Regions, Alliances & Enterprise Sales at Baker Hughes. “We look forward to collaborating with WCA and its members as the industry looks to cut emissions and reduce their environmental impact, through new energy frontiers and increased efficiencies.”
