14 March 2016
This whitepaper examines three successful sustainability strategies deployed by the cement industry and the analytical instrumentation that has helped to make them successful.

Cement is a crucial global commodity, indeed usage levels are a useful indicator of economic activity, but manufacturers have recognized for some years that to safeguard the industry’s long term health, a reduction in impact is essential.
