Concrete is one of the most important substances on earth. After water, it is the most consumed product on earth. Yet it’s key ingredient – cement – is extremely polluting. It is responsible for over 90 per cent of the carbon footprint of concrete. Overall, every tonne of cement manufactured emits almost one tonne of CO2.
Ecocem is a pioneer of high-performance cement technology for the deep and rapid decarbonisation of the cement and concrete industries. This technology has the potential to reduce the carbon footprint of the cement industry by as much as 70%
