Decarbonisation Pathways for the EU Cement Sector

In order to be in line with the Paris Agreement the EU has committed to achieving greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050 under the European Green Deal. This poses a challenge for some industry sectors, among them the cement sector. Mitigation efforts such as energy efficiency and a fuel switch are not enough for this sector to achieve carbon-neutrality. Most mitigation efforts target energy-related emissions, whereas process emissions will require an expansive roll-out of emerging technologies. This study by the NewClimate Institute aims to identify and analyze key emerging technologies and asses their potential through scenario analysis. Furthermore, it proposes a concept for accelerating mitigation ambition and offer high-level policy recommendations.
