Climate Cooperation China
On behalf of the International Climate Initiative (IKI)

Research proposal exchange with Chinese cement sector experts

During the workshop on 26 January, the NDCI project‘s workstream on sectoral best practices met up with Chinese partners and experts from the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation (NCSC), the Energy Research Institute (ERI), China Cement Association, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in order to discuss next steps for the planned cooperation on aligning the Chinese cement sector with the Chinese NDC targets.

During the meeting, which was opened by the Chinese and German team leaders Dr GAO Xiang and Steffen MENZEL, respectively, a number of prepared questions were discussed by the participants. The focus of the exchange lay on the best way to calculate emissions for the sector in the first place, as well as on the most promising technology options for emissions reduction in the production process.

In the case of cement, greening the industry will require extensive measures for carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS), so the attendants of the workshop discussed potential policy-weighting regarding CCUS and alternative measures, such as demand reduction, green energy usage, and reducing the percentage of clinker used in the production process.
