Jumeirah Emirates Towers Sheikh Zayed Road Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The World Cement Association has announced its fifth annual conference and exhibition will take place September 25 to 28, 2022, in person, at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers in Dubai, UAE. The conference will bring together global leaders and experts from the cement and wider hard-to-abate sector, showcasing progress the industry has made towards decarbonisation, and discussing further opportunities to improve competitiveness while also reducing carbon emissions.

This year’s theme is Navigating the climate challenge: Reducing carbon and reducing costs, and will highlight that for many cement companies today, significant environmental gains can be made with very limited investments that also serve to lower costs.

The event will include an agenda consisting of panel discussions, thematic workshops, CEO dialogues, presentations and networking opportunities. These sessions will cover pressing issues facing the industry, such as responding to climate change, high energy costs and post-Covid recovery, as well as new technologies, AI, and social issues, including climate justice and gender diversity.

The conference will be a unique opportunity for industry stakeholders to come together in person to discuss a common net zero roadmap. Delegates will learn about the latest technological developments while capitalising on local expertise and real-world case studies to achieve best practice, achieve operational and energy efficiency with minimal investment, and improve competitiveness at the same time as reducing carbon emissions.

The conference will also feature updates on other work being carried out by WCA, including a decarbonisation decision tool for use at plant level, covering areas such as energy efficiency, fuel switching, clinker factor and SCMs, reducing CKD losses and false air.

“I’m very much looking forward to meeting many of my colleagues from around the world in person again after so long, and discussing some of the advances our industry has made, as well as improvements that are necessary to confront the major and urgent environmental and technological challenges that the cement sector faces,” said Ian Riley, WCA CEO. “This year’s conference will bring together industry leaders and experts to promote effective investments and tangible decarbonisation efforts ahead of inevitable regulatory changes, and set out a sectoral decarbonisation framework that accelerates industrial excellence”.
