Ceramic Roadmap: Paving the Way to 2050

As part of its 50th anniversary, the European Ceramic Association Cerame-Unie launched the Ceramic Roadmap Paving the Way to 2050 at the 13th European Parliament Ceramics Forum in Brussels.

The Ceramic Roadmap is the European ceramic industry’s contribution to the European debate on a smarter, more competitive and resource-efficient future for the EU. The Emissions Reduction Model developed by Cerame-Unie shows the emissions reductions the European ceramics industry could potentially achieve by 2050, as well as the support needed to reach these goals and an overview of known and breakthrough technologies. Ceramics’ contribution to resource and energy efficiency can only be appreciated with a holistic approach that considers the complete lifecycle of the product, not just the carbon at the point of manufacture. This should include durability and impact over the use phase. The Ceramic Roadmap calls for a supportive regulatory framework to facilitate development and investment in breakthrough technologies, to promote European competitiveness based on sustainable economic growth and to reduce the risk of carbon and job leakage.
