Lower carbon fuels project in the news

Jan 15, 2018 | Plant News

On January 11, 2018, we announced our major lower carbon fuels research project in partnership with the University of Calgary, Queen’s University, and Pembina Institute.

Lafarge is involved in a number of research and development programs to convert Canadian cement plants from fossil fuels to lower carbon fuels. As part of our corporate vision to produce 40 per cent less net Co2 per tonne of cement by 2030 we’ve embarked on this million-dollar study to understand the environmental benefits of introducing lower carbon fuels at our Exshaw Cement Plant.

Have a listen to the following interviews to learn more about the project and how it will help us remain the most Co2 efficient global business in our sector.
