Cembureau issues map of decarbonisation project

Cembureau, the European Cement Association, has published an interactive map showing the decarbonisation projects currently ongoing in the cement industry across Europe.

The interactive map, which is available on Cembureau’s website, currently identifies a total of 53 projects spread over the European territory. It provides a brief description of each project, including the project types and key partners, in addition to its geographical location. The projects involve different technologies to reduce the cement industry’s CO2 emissions, such as:

Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage

The phase-out of fossil fuels and their replacement with non-recy-clable waste and biomass waste

The development of low-clinker cements, new cements and alternative binders

The recarbonation of concrete and mineralization of aggregates

The map demonstrates the sector’s commitment to invest in low-carbon technologies, in line with Cembureau’s Carbon Neutrality Roadmap. As shown in the map, the sector uses a significant variety of technologies to reduce its carbon footprint, impacting the full cement and concrete value chain.

The content of the interactive map will be kept updated as further projects are launched by the European cement industry.
