Invitation

Green Transition of Cement and Concrete Production in Denmark

  • -

  • Danish Technological Institute, Gregersensvej 1, DK-2630 Taastrup, Entrance 1, The Conference Hall

The project “Green Transition of Cement and Concrete Production in Denmark – 2014-2019” has created internationally remarkable results and now where the project is close to an end, the project partners are inviting to a closing conference of the project. The main results from the project will be summarised, presented and discussed.

In addition to presentation of the main project results, the conference is bringing in several international speakers giving their view on the challenges the international cement and concrete industry is facing. The combination of project related presentations and international key notes will hopefully contribute to good discussions and views on the project in a global perspective.

The conference is organized in collaboration with the Danish Concrete Society DBF and InnoBYG.

Moderators:
Thomas Uhd, Director of the Danish Concrete Association
Christian Munch-Petersen, Head of Danish National Standardisation Committee for Concrete Technology S-328 and partner at Emcon a/s
Dorthe Mathiesen, Director of the Concrete Centre at the Danish Technological Institute.
