The cement industry is working hard to reduce its reliance on fossil fuels by using a technique called co-processing. This sees waste used as both a fossil fuel replacement and as a raw material.

CEMBUREAU is organising a pop-up event that will show participants how everyday materials can be recycled and recovered for energy through co-processing.
