Technologies and policies for GHG emission reductions along the supply chains for the Swedish construction industry
Paper in proceedings, 2017
As the energy performance of the existing and new built building stock keeps improving and with reduced carbon intensity of electricity and fuel supply and increased electrification, the share of the construction process in the climate impact of buildings and infrastructure will increase. The aim of this paper is to discuss how innovative technologies, business models and innovation support mechanisms can accelerate the transition towards zero-emission practices in the construction and building materials industries. The focus is on the production, supply and final end-use of cement/concrete and steel.
