The World Cement Association (WCA) will hold its 6th Annual Conference and Exhibition from Oct. 24-25, at the Emirates Towers in Dubai, UAE. The conference is an opportunity for industry leaders to come together and discuss the most pressing issues that the cement and wider hard-to-abate sector’s face.
This year’s theme, “Improving Profitability in a Time of Multiple Global Crises,” will be a crucial point of discussion for cement industry stakeholders, as the sector continues to face several issues, such as rising energy prices, supply chain disruptions, increased market competition, and the ever-increasing pressure to reduce carbon emissions.
“In the past year the cement and concrete industry has been severely affected by various external factors. As customer requirements are shifting and regulatory standards are evolving, innovations in digital technologies and opportunities to reduce clinker factor are showing particular promise in terms of helping tackle some of these issues,” said Ian Riley, WCA CEO. “Coming together to learn about new innovations, discuss strategy and share best practices is more crucial than ever, which is why we have chosen this focus for this year’s annual conference to help the sector advance.”
Attendees will be able to participate in a broad range of discussions and listen to presentations on improving cost efficiency, advances in new technologies targeting the reduction of energy intensity and CO2 emissions, new products and materials, changes in global market conditions and many other topics.
