Green and digital – the cement plant of the future

Excessive emissions of CO2 in the cement industry are exacerbating climate change. Today’s CO2 emissions from cement plants account for seven percent of global CO2 emissions. The implementation of the Oxyfuel process could take cement plants a big step further towards achieving long-term carbon neutrality. thyssenkrupp is also working in other sectors, such as steel production with Carbon2Chem®, to isolate and reuse CO2. Both technologies use synergies from the chemical and renewable energy sectors and show that the capture, storage and utilization of CO2 to achieve carbon neutrality is not a contradiction in terms. thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions

Cement and Concrete Innovation

With the need to meet the Paris Agreement, the focus is now on breakthrough technologies such as CCUS and process electrification. Innovative cements include both new clinker substitutes and new types of clinker and new binding materials. Furthermore we will observe business and services innovation in the whole value chain including digitization and BIM. Global Cement and Concrete Association.

The 21st-century cement plant: Greener and more connected

The cement plant of the future achieves considerably lower operating costs and higher asset value through higher energy efficiency, yield, and throughput. More targeted and effective maintenance lengthens the lifetime of equipment. Each plant’s environmental footprint is minimized, securing its license to operate across locations and jurisdictions. The plant meets customer demand by dynamically adjusting production and logistics according to real-time customer data. McKinsey
