Three out of four European cement producers are operating above the emissions threshold set by the new EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities, risking both their license to operate and commercial opportunities, says Fleming Voetmann at FLSmidth
Replacing limestone with clay in cement production can cut global CO2 emissions by up to 3%. But there is significant investment tied up in the "old" ways of doing things, and it will be necessary to use a range of incentives—as well as technological advancements—to change the status quo, writes Fleming Voetmann, vice president at FLSmidth
The cement and mining industries recognise their need to decarbonise, and the rapidly falling price of renewables-generated electricity is making this decision easier, says Thomas Schulz, CEO at FLSmidth
The mining and cement industries contribute over 10% of the world’s CO₂ emissions but demand in both industries remains high. It is, therefore, imperative that decarbonisation efforts should be accelerated, argues Thomas Schulz, CEO of engineering firm FLSmidth
