With rising population growth and increasing urbanisation, the cement industry is likely to grow its business for many years to come. This also means a rise in CO2 levels as the industry accounts for about seven per cent of total global CO2 emissions. However, a Danish factory is showing how CO2 emissions could be reduced by 60-70 per cent.
South Korea has a strong focus on smart city and big data solutions that can make cities more intelligent, liveable and sustainable. Therefore, a delegation group of South Korean government officials, business representatives and researchers visited Denmark to explore the innovative digital solutions that can address cities’ energy, environment and climate-related challenges.
A Danish-Chinese energy partnership supports China in increasing the flexibility of its coal-fired power plants. This has resulted in more green energy in the electricity system, corresponding to nine 800 MW offshore wind farms, and reduced CO2 emissions by 22 million tonnes, equivalent to 63 per cent of the CO2 emissions from the Danish energy consumption.
Last week two high level delegations from Australia and New Zealand visited Denmark to learn more about the Danish approach to a number of political and business-related topics.
