A first look at US cement manufacturers' road map to carbon nuetrality
Cement companies work for a carbon neutral value chain by 2050. Read about how the industry plans for a future of more sustainable development.
The Portland Cement Association (PCA), which represents the vast majority of US cement manufacturing, announced its goal for members to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This can have a huge impact on reducing US emissions from construction.
Some of the ways that they will achieve this goal include using alternative fuel sources, using performance-based materials, and using carbon capture technologies.
The cement industry has a long road ahead of them to achieve the progress necessary for carbon neutrality, and it largely depends on the development of new technologies. These goals will require great investment from cement companies, but the investments may pay off in large reductions of emissions caused by the industry.
