Europe is the cradle of the manufacturing industry and has been at the forefront of industrial revolutions and technological innovations. The industry directly employs over 34 million people across all Member States, in supply chains comprising hundreds of thousands of SMEs and larger suppliers. It also indirectly accounts for millions of additional jobs in related sectors.

The European cement industry is continuously researching ways to improve the quality of its products and reducing its environmental impact. It dedicates significant time and resources to innovation projects across a broad range of areas.
Every year, 2.5 billion tonnes of waste are generated across the European Union. This waste is managed in a variety of ways, including recycling, landfilling and energy recovery (also referred to as ‘waste-to-energy’). Just over half of the waste generate is recycled, 13% is used for energy recovery but still 35% is disposed of, mostly in landfills.
The recently launched revamped Cemreview provides the latest insights into markets of relevance to the cement industry and fuel purchasers.
