CEMBUREAU welcomes the opportunity to comment on the review of the EU ETS which should provide full free allocation to best performers


In Europe, there is still a large amount of waste which cannot be recycled. Fortunately, there are several other solutions available for this waste - and co-processing in the cement industry is one of them!
The World Statistical Review provides information on cement production, imports, exports, total per capita consumption and population on a worldwide country basis.
On 27 May 2014, CEMBUREAU, along with the precast (BIBM) and ready-mixed (ERMCO) associations, launched The Concrete Initiative at an event where industry experts, NGOs and policymakers engaged in a thought-provoking dialogue on how concrete can contribute to a more energy and resource-efficient society. The key messages were further conveyed to and tested with Members of the newly elected European Parliament at a very-well attended evening dinner in November in Strasbourg.

Key facts & figures

Highlights - Hopes for acceleration in economic recovery have resulted in some slowdown in real GDP growth rates in Q2 2015, as the EU28 recorded +0.4% vs +0.5% in Q1 2015 (same as in the euro area).
Latest quarterly figures (Q1 2015) reveal some economic momentum across Member States as GDP growth gained speed in many EU Member States (MS). However, divergences in economic performances persisted and recovery from the cumulated GDP losses is still lagging behind in some of the MS that were most affected by the subdued economic cycle across the EU since Q4 2008.
