A&C Attends China Concrete and Cement Innovation Forum with UK Lower Carbon Concrete Group

China is the world’s largest concrete producer, facing significant carbon emission challenges due to rapid urbanisation. To address this, China is exploring low-carbon concrete production methods. In 2024, from May 31st to June 2nd, the China Concrete and Cement-based Products Association (CCPA) will host the China Concrete Exhibition, showcasing green innovations and providing global development opportunities. The event will feature leading companies, research institutions, and international groups, and include an innovation forum to discuss low-carbon technologies and standardisation, promoting sustainable development in the construction industry.

Concrete production has a significant impact on carbon emissions, with cement being a major contributor. China's cement industry accounts for about 8% of the country's total carbon emissions. As urbanization increases, so does the demand for concrete. China is actively exploring eco-friendly production methods, promoting low-carbon cement, and developing new concrete formulas to reduce environmental impact while supporting economic growth.
