European Cement Association (CEMBUREAU)

The European Cement Association, CEMBUREAU, is the representative organization of the cement industry in Europe acting as spokesperson for the cement industry before the European Union institutions and other public authorities, and communicates the industry’s views on all issues and policy developments. Currently, its Full Members are the national cement industry associations and cement companies of the European Union (with the exception of Cyprus, Malta and Slovakia) plus Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.

CEMBUREAU plays a role in the world-wide promotion of cement and the ready-mix and precast concrete industries in co-operation with Member Associations and other relevant organizations. The Association regularly co-hosts conferences on specific issues aimed at improving the market perception of the concrete industry and promoting the use of generic cement and concrete products. In addition, the Association regularly commissions studies to evaluate specific issues of importance to the industry.

CEMBUREAU has been involved in the promotion of energy efficiency and the use of alternative fuels in the cement industry.  For instance, CEMBUREAU has published a report on the co-processing of alternative fuels and raw materials in the European cement industry (CEMBUREAU 2009). In another report by CEMBUREAU, it discusses the environmental benefits of using alternative fuels in cement production (CEMBUREAU 1999).
