German cement sector

Information and Data

Energy consumption

The German cement industry has always been an energy-intensive sector. All together, the 54 German cement works consume around 3.5 Terrawatt-hours of electricity per year; each tonne of cement requires approximately 100 kilowatt-hours. 

Demand for raw materials

Deposits of limestone, clay or marl are the basis for the German cement production. Therefore the increase in resource productivity and saving valuable natural resources are for the German manufacturer of great importance.
