VIDEO: Energy efficiency, sustainability, and cement
Phillipe Fonta is the managing director of the Cement Sustainability Initiative, and he was recently in Vancouver promoting cement as an energy-efficient method of construction for current and future projects.
Fonta spoke to the Journal of Commerce about the efforts being made by the cement industry to reduce waste and recycle material, while at the same time producing product that is more energy-efficient than in past.
