WCA, alongside co-authors from Huaxin Cement, Sinoma Cement and Sinoma International Engineering have written an article for ZKG Magazine on Alternative Fuels and municipal/industrial waste co-processing in China, and the benefits that this brings to communities and municipalities there. 

London, 11th May 2020 - As part of our services for members, and to connect the global cement community during the COVID-19 pandemic when business as usual is not possible, WCA has scheduled a range of webinars covering diverse topics under two broad themes, "COVID-19 & the Cement Industry", and "Life After COVID-19". These are hosted twice, once in Chinese, once in English. Last week's webinar, featuring Associate Corporate Member, FLSmidth, discussing  Alternative Fuel Upgrade Opportunities, saw over 800 participants attending from around the world.

Our recent WCA member survey highlighted high levels of interest in the co-processing of municipal and hazardous wastes as alternative fuels for the cement industry. In this blog, Chinese cement producer, BBMG discusses their advances in and capacities for waste-co-processing, how this can contribute towards the Chinese Waste Free City vision, and how this technology can be used to dispose of medical waste during the COVID-19 epidemic. 

London, 25 October 2019 - "We have made significant progress in 2018, and further improved our CO2 performance," says Christian Knell, President of VDZ (the German Association of Cement Manufacturers) which represents 15 German cement manufacturers with a total of 46 cement plants.

New York, 23 September 2019 - Last month, at the UN Climate Summit in New York, the problem of how to decrease industry emissions from the most energy intensive and hard-to-abate sectors was hotly discussed. Decreasing emissions from these sectors, including cement, steel, aluminium, chemicals, aviation and shipping is crucial, since these are forecast to be responsible for 15.7Gt of CO2 by 2050. 

London, 12 September 2019 – The World Cement Association (WCA) is urging the global cement industry to more effectively embrace decarbonisation and to increase efforts to adopt new technologies faster and put greater focus on innovation in order to make crucial progress on reducing CO2 emissions.
