Cemex to Reduce Emissions Via ‘Micronization’

Cemex announced the development of an innovative process called micronization designed to decrease CO2 emissions in cement production by reducing the size of clinker particles. 

When combined with the use of proprietary admixtures, micronization allows cement to significantly reduce its clinker factor per ton of cement, thereby minimizing its carbon footprint. Additionally, clinker micronization has the added feature of maintaining the specified development strength required by the highest global cement standards.

“We are finding new ways to boost our decarbonization roadmap in the production of cement and concrete” said Cemex CEO Fernando A. González. “We remain committed to achieving our ambitious 2030 decarbonization goals on the path to becoming a Net Zero company by 2050.”

Cemex said the adoption of clinker micronization has the potential to reduce the clinker factor in cement products up to 50%, which would significantly accelerate progress toward its decarbonization goals. 

Industrial scale production trials have validated initial R&D findings.
