CEMEX and MPP collaborate on decarbonisation
13 May 2024

CEMEX and the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP), in partnership with the Bezos Earth Fund, are collaborating to conduct an analysis of the potential of decarbonisation levers at CEMEX’s Balcones cement plant in Texas. According to CEMEX, this analysis aims to accelerate the company’s commitment to achieving net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050.

There are various technological pathways to decarbonise the cement industry and MPP is assisting CEMEX in evaluating these pathways at the production plant level, which includes the use of alternative fuels, incorporation of lower-carbon materials, carbon capture and storage, and the utilisation of captured carbon to produce synthetic fuels, chemicals, or construction materials.

“Our collaboration with the Mission Possible Partnership represents a joint effort seeking to accelerate our sustainable commitments and comprehensively evaluate the extent to which we can utilise decarbonisation levers within a specific plant ecosystem,” said Fernando A González, CEO of CEMEX. “This involves leveraging scalable technologies that would contribute to achieving our ambitious decarbonisation goals on the path to becoming a net-zero company by 2050.”

CEMEX and MPP are exploring technologies that can substitute fossil fuels traditionally used to heat kilns with waste, renewable gas, biomass, hydrogen, and electrification of the kilns as they strive for a more sustainable industrial production process, added CEMEX.
