What is the project about?

The Clean Cement Line aims to develop and demonstrate a new cement production technology. This project includes four R&D sub-projects that aim to eliminate the dependence on fossil fuels, increase energy efficiency, produce electricity itself, integrate the digitalization process and reduce CO2 emissions. These innovations will promote the production of a low carbon clinker and consequently the creation of a range of cement types with a low ecological footprint.
