  23. 23. 23 Key collaborative actions to 2030 & beyond Governments and industry must collaborate to accelerate the sustainable transition by: • Creating an enabling, level playing field • Putting technological change into action • Facilitating uptake of sustainable products
  24. 24. 24 Investment requirements and financial support Realising the RTS would require between USD 107 and 127 billion global additional cumulative investments by 2050 compared to the status quo. Achieving the 2DS would require increasing those investments by between USD 176 and 244 billion cumulatively. 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 No action Additional investments RTS Additional investments 2DS - Roadmap vision USDbillion Net additional cumulative investments high-bound cost Net additional cumulative investments low-bound cost Overall cumulative investment Overall cumulative investments by scenario (2015-2050) Reference: IEA-CSI, 2018.

Notes: Slide 15: thermal energy intensity of clinker and electricity intensity of cement refer to the low-variability case. Slide 19: PC = Portland cement, CSA = calcium sulphoaluminate, BCSA = belite calcium sulphoaluminate, CACS = carbonation of calcium silicates, MOMS = magnesium oxide derived from magnesium silicates. OPC clinker mainly contains 63% alite, 15% belite, 8% tricalcium aluminate and 9% tetracalcium alumino-ferrite. Belite clinker is considered to mainly contain 62% belite, 16% alite, 8% tricalcium aluminate and 9% tetracalcium alumino-ferrite. CSA clinker is considered to mainly contain 47.5% ye’elimite, 23.9% belite, 12.9% wollastonite and 8.6% tetracalcium alumino-ferrite. BCSA clinker is considered to mainly contain 46% belite, 35% ye’elimite and 17% tetracalcium alumino-ferrite. Commercial compositions of CACS clinker are not currently available. CACS clinker in this assessment is considered to primarily consist of wollastonite but commercial composition is likely to be different at some extent, and possibly higher in process CO2 emissions. Process CO2 emissions generated in CACS clinker making are in principle re-absorbed during the curing process.
