Eco-blend cements for low-carbon construction

Cement production is instrumental to the government’s infrastructure expansion plans and development goals. Given its significant carbon footprint, using conventional cement in the planned infrastructure build will make the achievement of South Africa’s greenhouse gas mitigation commitments more difficult. Substituting clinker with Supplementary Cementitious Materials to create cements with lower environmental impact (eco-blends) is the simplest and most obvious option to reduce cement’s carbon footprint.

Surplus food from farms and firms onto forks

Farmers, fresh produce markets, food manufacturers and food retailers routinely generate surplus foods. Much of this ends up as waste. If diverted in time, a sizeable share of this food can instead be redirected for human consumption, helping to alleviate hunger, and creating several benefits for the generating firms. Redirecting surplus food will also avoid the loss of significant amounts of energy, water and financial capital embedded in wasted food, and the greenhouse gases resulting from its decomposition at landfills.

Solar thermal technologies: clean fit for food and beverage industries

Solar thermal technologies can best supply the low to medium heat range required for processing in the food and beverage industries. Currently in agriprocessing in South Africa, up to 77% of energy use is for heating processes. Most of this energy comes from non-renewable sources, leading to extensive greenhouse gas emissions. There is an emerging climate-smart opportunity for solar thermal technology businesses to capture this market.
