Ecocem, Europe’s leading pioneer of high-performance, low carbon cement technologies, has today announced the appointment of Christian Clergue, a sustainable concrete and cement expert, as European Standards Manager.

Throughout his 33-year career, Christian Clergue has demonstrated his deep expertise in cement and concrete materials, including low-carbon concrete, and in particular the regulations, standards and norms that govern the industry.

His appointment is a step forward in enabling Ecocem to progress the large-scale decarbonisation of the construction industry through the development of low-carbon cement solutions and specifically addressing the normative frameworks which will enable this.

Conor O'Riain, Managing Director for the Ecocem Group, commented on the appointment:

"Our ambition is to accelerate the standardisation process for our innovative low carbon cements and technologies. This will be instrumental in helping the industry meeting the 2030 decarbonisation deadline. Christian Clergue brings vast experience in industry norms and standards which will play a central role in helping accelerate the normative evolution of cements and concretes. We are delighted to welcome him to the Ecocem team"

Christian Clergue added: "Ecocem has demonstrated its commitment to innovation and low carbon cement technologies for over twenty years. At a time when the industry is asking for urgent answers to the CO2 challenge, we need a flexible and intelligent approach to working together. I am excited by the opportunity, and I look forward to working with Ecocem and industry colleagues to make low carbon cement at scale a reality.”

Christian Clergue holds a PhD in the physics of materials. He began his career at Vicat Group as Deputy Director of Sigma Béton, before moving on to the position of Director of the Group’s Satma Cepeca prefabrications. He went on to manage Sigma Béton a few years later, and in parallel oversaw the BEFUP market development mission before taking over Research and Development and diversifying his knowledge of materials.

He moved on from Vicat Group to Eiffage Génie Civil, where he directed the Department of Innovation and Materials, enabling the deployment of low-carbon cements and concretes on the Group’s worksites.
