Cemsuisse publishes Roadmap 2050 carbon neutrality strategy
The Swiss cement association Cemsuisse has published Roadmap 2050, a plan for the achievement of net carbon neutrality by 2050. As part of the plan, the association says that Swiss cement producers will launch carbon capture and storage (CCS) installations at their plants from 2030. Individual companies’ plans also involve the reduction of products’ clinker factors and alteration of cement kiln fuel mixes.
Cemsuisse lobbied the government to approve producers’ mining permits in order to prevent an increase in imports from 686,000t in 2020. The figure corresponds to 15 per cent of the nation’s 4.70Mt consumption.
