CSI launches new technology report

Published by
World Cement,

The Cement Sustainability Initiative (CSI), part of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, has released a new report on the technologies available to help the cement industry mitigate its greenhouse gas emissions. The report responds to the Paris Agreement and updates the CSI’s original set of technology papers, which were first developed in 2009.

The report includes 52 individual papers that look at well-known existing technologies. The papers review the latest development and implementation status of these technologies. Seven additional summary papers describe anticipated technological developments that are expected to enhance CO2 mitigation in cement production.

The report also includes an assessment of possible implementation, the challenges, and the costs of these technologies in future scenarios out to 2030 and 2050.

The publication of the report makers a “major step in the implementation of commitments made by the cement sector in Paris,” said Philippe Fonta, Managing Director of the CSI. It also “demonstrates that the business is more than ever focuses on supporting the implementation of the Paris Agreement.”

In addition to providing a reference source for the global cement industry, the papers will also be used by the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the CSI to update their joint global cement technology roadmap. The roadmap will be launched at COP23 in Bonn, Germany, in November.
