Federal programs and subsidies are driving the consumption for green cement

Federal programs and subsidies play a critical role in increasing green cement usage, with governments throughout the world launching a variety of measures to encourage the use of environmentally friendly construction materials. In the United Kingdom (UK), the government has established programs such as the Green Construction Board and the Clean Growth Strategy, which offer financial incentives and support for projects that use sustainable construction materials such as green cement.

Similarly, in India, the government has implemented initiatives like the National Mission for Enhanced Energy Efficiency and the Green Highways Policy to encourage the use of green technology in infrastructure building, including green cement. Subsidies and tax breaks are offered to encourage the building sector to adopt more sustainable methods.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has also shown a commitment to sustainability with projects like the UAE Vision 2021 and the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050. Government-funded projects promote the use of sustainable construction materials, with developers providing subsidies and incentives for incorporating green cement into their projects.

In 2022, Vancouver and Toronto have set net-zero greenhouse gas emissions objectives for all new buildings by 2030, while Montreal must achieve net zero by 2025. There are also ongoing initiatives to discover a greener way to produce concrete, which is the primary material used in most building. They include a novel solution from Halifax-based CarbonCure Technologies that incorporates recycled CO2 into the concrete mix.

In US, Three jurisdictions, including Denver, Boston, and New York City, will impose financial penalties on properties that fail to reach carbon reduction targets. For example, the municipal Energize Denver code specifies that buildings 25,000 square feet or greater must reach a final EUI objective by 2030. The Building Emissions Reduction and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO) is an important environmental program enacted by the City of Boston. The city intends to steadily reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. New York City's Local Law 97 (LL97) will assess fines similarly to Boston, but with a small twist. Beginning in 2024, all commercial structures 25,000 square feet or bigger will be required to comply with LL97. The city's objective is to minimize greenhouse gas emissions.

The High Costs Compared to Traditional Cement Pose a Challenge

Green cement manufacturing faces greater costs since it relies on more complex procedures and different resources than standard Portland cement. This intricacy frequently results in a higher starting cost per tonne for green cement. While the environmental benefits of green cement provide significant long-term value, economic restrictions in construction projects usually lead stakeholders to choose more cheap conventional alternatives.

The pricing of green cement varies considerably based on factors such as brand, location, production methods, and market demand. Generally, green cement tends to be slightly pricier than Portland cement due to the expenses associated with its raw materials. Despite this disparity, many builders prioritize sustainability and are willing to pay a premium for the environmental advantages offered by green cement. For example, in the United States, prices can range from $80 to $160 per ton, with variations across states like California and Texas.

In India, where the building sector contributes significantly to economic growth, the high cost of green cement has hampered its adoption, despite rising awareness of sustainability problems. Traditional cement remains the chosen choice for many developers owing to its cheaper initial costs, despite the fact that green cement may provide long-term environmental advantages and durability.

In Europe, where environmental regulations are often more stringent, prices can range from €90 to €150 per ton. However, as the demand for eco-friendly construction materials continues to grow, it is anticipated that the price of green cement will decrease over time.

Despite rising environmental consciousness and a trend toward sustainable construction techniques in the United States, the high cost of green cement continues to be a barrier to wider implementation. While certain jurisdictions, such as California, provide incentives and rebates for green construction projects, the general market penetration of green cement is restricted by its cost competitiveness with traditional options.

Similarly, in rising economies such as Brazil and South Africa, where infrastructure development is a crucial engine of economic growth, the cost of construction materials is an important concern. Green cement's higher prices can provide hurdles for government-funded infrastructure projects and private developers operating on tight budgets, restricting its adoption despite the potential long-term advantages for sustainability and environmental protection.

Research and development activities are continuing to improve manufacturing methods and reduce prices in order to make green cement more competitive in the market. Despite the problems created by their high costs, the rising demand for sustainable construction materials emphasizes the significance of breaking down this barrier in order to hasten the transition to a more ecologically friendly built environment.
