Bernard Mathieu recently joined the Business Advisory Board of the Low Carbon Cement Project, which provides recommendations to the Project Team for a successful market deployment.
The Low Carbon Cement Project, financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC, is a crucial innovation project aiming at deploying so-called “LC3” cements as a sustainable alternative to traditional cement types, contributing hereby to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from the global cement sector.
The project is led by the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne) with renowned partners in India and Latin America.
LC3 is a new type of cement, based on a blend of limestone and calcined clay. Thanks to this new type of cement, CO2 emissions can be reduced by up to 40%. LC3 is made by using limestone and low-grade clays which are available in abundant quantities. It is cost-effective and does not require capital-intensive modifications to existing cement plants.
HOP3 Consulting contributed in 2020 to the development of the terms of reference for Phase 3 of the project (2020-2022). We are proud to continue contributing to the success of the LCC Project by our active contribution to the Advisory Board.
