Germany: Decarbonising the industry in a stable market environmentDuring the past years Germany has been experiencing an increasing demand for buildings and infrastructure, which has led to a growing cement market. While the outlook is expected to stay positive, all forces are now concentrated towards achieving climate targets. With 2050 still far in the future, the industry is building on introducing cements with lower clinker factors to the market and initiating first pilot and demonstration plants for capturing CO2. Already today it is clear that this immense transformation process cannot be achieved by the industry alone, but needs strong support from policymakers and, finally, acceptance by society.
