Carbon Reduction is Critical in Cement Industry, Chatham House Researcher Says

Felix Preston from Chatham House noted the challenges involved in disseminating best practices, especially in an industry which is concerned with safety and material performance, but said there are ways to speed up deployment.

Rapid shifts could be delivered through smart public procurement, and incentives and regulations encouraging the use of waste materials in cements. New industry standards are needed to accelerate the adoption of low carbon cement. Some cities are already seeking to build a market for low carbon cements.
