China: The Chinese Ministry of Information and Technology has announced that China's cement industry will source 65% of its electricity needs from waste materials by 2015, as part of the country's wide-ranging 12th Five-Year Plan period (2011-2015). It said that this would help China's building materials industry to see its energy consumption per unit of industrial value-added output reduced by 20% by 2015 compared to 2010.
