Africa Net Zero: Dr. Wolfram Schmidt on ‘green’ cement19 April 2021

Did you know that cement production is responsible for 8 – 12% of the world’s CO2 emissions?

In fact, if the cement industry were a country, it would be the third largest carbon dioxide emitter in the world with up to 2.8bn tonnes.

As part of our #AfricaNetZero series, we spoke to @Wolfram Schmidt about his research into alternative materials like cassava and other agricultural residues as a source of ‘green’ African-made cement for future sustainable construction on the Continent.

Thank you, Wolfram, for sharing your insights with us!
