France: The French cement industry union (SFIC), plus three other professional organisations, has announced that has committed to increase the amount of wood waste used in France’s cement plants. It has committed to increasing the amount used by 90% compared to 2015 by 2020.

90,000t of wood were used as fuel in cement production in 2015. The goal is to use 170,000t in 2020. Four cement plants will act as pilot sites. The wood used must be from the same region as the plant burning it. According to the SFIC, alternative fuels account for 41% of cement fuels used in France.
