Event Details

The cement industry is facing multiple global crises:

  • increasing energy prices;
  • supply chain disruption;
  • oversupply and low prices in many markets; and
  • ever-increasing pressure to reduce carbon emissions.

Of course, each crisis also offers opportunity to those who are willing to seize them. Customers have new priorities which moves away from commoditized demand driven only by price. Supply chain disruptions also offer the potential for differentiation.

This year WCA's annual conference will focus on how cement companies can improve profitability in the face of these crises. We will look at developments in digital technology, new products and materials and changes in market requirements.

Under the theme of "Improving Profitability in a Time of Multiple Global Crises" we will cover the following topics:

  • Worldwide industry and market situation
  • New technologies to reduce energy intensity and CO2 emissions
  • Changing customer demands
  • Opportunities to reduce clinker factor in cement and concrete
