With the global population forecast to reach 9.3bn by 2050, demand for concrete to meet our urbanisation needs is expected to rise substantially. However, its manufacture requires cement, the production of which currently accounts for as much as eight per cent of global CO2 emissions. The cement industry is now actively developing effective and efficient methods to reduce the level of CO2 emissions, ultimately aiming to achieve carbon neutrality in cement and concrete production by 2050.1
