Spanish cement industry targets 43% emissions drop by 2030
The Spanish cement association Oficemen has targeted a 43 per cent emissions drop by 2030 across its entire value chain compared to 1990 levels.
The objective has been published as part of the association’s sustainability roadmap to 2050. It is a tightening of the previous target of 27 per cent by 2030. Oficemen intends to meet the tougher reduction by using the so-called 5C approach - clinker, cement, concrete, construction and built environment, and (re)carbonation – as detailed by Cembureau,
the European Cement Association. Oficemen also revealed that it is working with the Spanish Technological Platform for CO2 (PTECO2) on identifying potential locations for storing captured CO2. Hugo
Morán, Secretary of State for the Environment, participated remotely with the launch event.
