The cement industry as one of the most energy-intensive sectors is responsible for approximately 8% of CO2 emissions. At the same time, existing cement and concrete standards have been identified as one of the main barriers to the uptake of low-carbon cements as they require minimum amounts of Portland cement to be traded on the European market. Our goal is to create opportunities for innovative, low carbon cements and contribute to the development of more performance-based standards for cement and cementitious materials.
