Green Cement Technology Tracker now includes calcined clay monitoring

Global: The Green Cement Technology Tracker, launched by the Global Cement and Concrete Association (GCCA) and the Leadership Group for Industry Transition (LeadIT), has expanded its scope to include calcined clay production, a significant step in cement industry decarbonisation. This tool, vital for tracking progress towards net zero emissions, initially focused on various decarbonising technologies and has now broadened to cover calcined clay kilns, which have lower energy requirements and CO2 reduction potential.

LeadIT Head Per Andersson said “In order to empower the industry and policymakers committed to emission reductions, our goal is to provide comprehensive tracking of public announcements of investments in low-carbon cement technologies.”

GCCA’s Cement, Innovation and ESG Director Claude Loréa said “Driving down emissions requires investment in new technologies and production methods and incorporating calcined clay can contribute significantly, making it a valuable strategy for sustainable construction.”
