Conference series dedicated to the concrete industry

Around the central theme of “low carbon”, the World Of Concrete Europe forum will present a series of educational talks and explanatory training workshops entirely dedicated to the concrete sector, the material itself and its various applications.

The forum is organized by a steering committee made up of experts from the main professional organizations and bodies in the sector:

Speakers recognised in their field of expertise

The sessions will be hosted by well-known figures from the building, masonry and civil works communities, members of construction federations and of the largest European companies in the sector.


Through around ten talks sessions, six themes focussing on the future of the material in its market have been selected to elicit thought and debate:


  • Decarbonisation issues: ambitions and timeline of the French Climate Plan, the National low carbon Strategy, RE 2020 and international labels.
  • The recipes of concrete to decarbonise the industry: the clinker factor, new low-carbon binders, additives in concrete (slag, pozzolans, ternary cements, etc.) exemplary projects using low-carbon concrete, etc.
  • Low-carbon logistics: short delivery channels, freight, personal accounts from organisations working in cement, ready-mix, pre-cast solutions, etc.
  • The process: cutting energy consumption, new low-carbon cement production units, alternative fuels, industrial investment, low-temperature processes, etc.
  • The circular economy: responsible sourcing, recycling, reuse, quarry reorganisation, production of recycled aggregates, recovery of spoil, feedback on worksites, etc.
  • Innovations: formulations, the role of admixtures for the use of low-carbon concrete, off-site and pre-cast concrete construction methods, modular construction, 3D printed concrete, etc.
