On 8 May 2012 the European Commission launched its 2012 call for proposals in relation to eco-innovation. 34.8 million Euros have been allocated to this initiative, with the Commission providing up to 50% in co-funding to around 50 projects. The aim is to help bring novel environmental projects to the market and the call is open to eco-innovative products, techniques, services and processes which prevent or reduce environmental impacts, or which contribute to the optimal use of resources. In this respect, two of the five main priority areas are of potential interest to the cement industry, namely materials recycling and sustainable construction. Applications can be submitted up until 6 September 2012.
