Potential reduction of carbon emissions by performance improvement: A cement industry case study

Daniel L Summerbell, Claire Barlow & Jonathan Cullen
The cement industry is generally considered responsible for upwards of 5% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. This is a result of the high energy intensity of the process, significant CO$_2$ release from the raw materials used, and large global consumption. It is also a high growth sector as emerging economies develop their infrastructure. This paper outlines an investigation into day-to-day performance variation that, if scaled to the global level, represents a potential for improvement of...
