Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: According to the International Energy Agency, the main levers for cement producers are the increase in energy efficiency and the use of alternative materials, be it as fuel or raw materials as mentioned in this paper, and therefore, the cement industry worldwide is facing growing challenges in conserving material and energy resources, as well as reducing its CO 2 emissions.
