 The cement industry contributes 7% of global man-made CO2 emissions. Industry initiatives to reduce the environmental impact of cement manufacturing are becoming more advanced and are now driven by the industry’s target to achieve net zero carbon emissions across the cement and concrete value chain by 2050.

To succeed in this challenge, an unprecedented level of research activity is underway in the cement industry to discover, advance and deploy modern technologies that can support this process of decarbonisation.

This Cemtech virtual conference is a new global forum exploring the critical challenges facing the cement sector, highlighting new technologies and approaches while sharing successes. Hear from industry experts, business leaders and stakeholders from across the sector.

Conference programme: 
This online conference will feature over 20 live presentations on key topics, including live Q&A, panel discussions, meeting rooms, presentation handouts, on-demand recordings and individual certificates.
