WORKSHOP ON DECARBONISING THE CEMENTITIOUS MATEIALS SECTOR

The European Climate Foundation has organized in Brussels a workshop on options, technologies and incentives for decarbonising the European cementitious materials sector. The workshop was led by Professor Karen Scrivener (EPFL), co-author of the UNEP report on “Eco-Efficient Cements”, and Professor Guillaume Habert (ETH Zürich), who are currently drafting a report on this issue in the European context. The workshop was designed to introduce the strategy to move from an energy efficiency approach at cement plant to a resource efficiency approach along the whole value chain. Low CO2 in cement, concrete and structures main issues of the agenda discussed.

Following all the presentations:

Low carbon structural design

LOw CO2 in concrete

Supplementary cementitious materials
