The report also includes an assessment of possible implementation levels, plus technologies' challenges and costs in 2030 and 2050 scenarios. The European Cement Research Academy supported CSI with the technology paper review. In addition, a thorough stakeholder consultation pro- cess involving experts from various cement companies, researchers and international organizations, has analyzed the outputs and ensured the analysis reflects the most up-to-date knowledge. The new technology papers will be a major source of information for the global cement industry. CSI is currently working with IEA to update their joint global cement GREENBUILD 2017 The annual Greenbuild International Con- ference and Expo will take place November 8-10 at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
