Why does Heidelberg have these plans?

Heidelberg’s goal is to become a global leader in sustainable building materials. The cement industry is responsible for 6-8% of global anthropogenic carbon emissions. Because of this, one of Heidelberg Materials’ main goals is to reduce its carbon footprint and the negative impact of cement production. The project at Þorlákshöfn is part of the company’s plan to significantly reduce carbon emissions in the construction industry and thus bring an important industry closer to sustainable production. The use of tuff in cement production and its processing with renewable energy in Iceland would reduce the climate impact of cement production to an extent unprecedented in the industry.
