Beyond Zero Emissions is launching Rethinking Cement this Friday 5pm at the NewSpace Building (University of Newcastle Hunter St Campus)
Rethinking Cement sets out a pathway for modernising cement, eliminating carbon emissions and building strong and durable infrastructure.
Making cement is responsible for 8% of all global emissions. If we don’t rethink cement, we won’t achieve our Paris goals.
Modernising cement is achievable and affordable, and Rethinking Cement shows how Australia can lead the world with zero carbon cement. We have the technology to wipe out emissions from cement in ten years, and with smart thinking, we can even turn cement into a carbon sink of the future.
Rethinking Cement is dedicated to the memory of Jennifer Bates.
The event will consist of refreshments with registration at 5 PM, followed by presentations of the research from BZE Project Director Michael Lord, a Q&A panel and opportunities to network with industry, academic and government figures who share the same interest in sustainable infrastructure and development.
We hope you can join us.
