The paper in the link above mention in section 15 that the major world cement group spends less than 0.2% of its turnover in R&D. Strangely this group pays around 40 times more to shareholders than it spends in R&D. On the contrary world top performers spend as much as 20% of its revenue in R&D. A minor 10.000% difference.

The Merck group mentioned in the email below that spends 10 billion euro in research does not even enter the Top 9 biggest R&D spenders and let´s not forget those are not polluting companies. According to the 2017 report LafargeHolcim produced 209 million tons of cement each means more than 170 million tons of carbon dioxide.

It makes little sense that a high polluting business need not to make a minimum effort to become more sustainable or maybe this is just capitalism in action !

Assunto: Elsevier___Construction is 9th place in 10 tech areas

See in the link below a paper by Ulrich A.K. Betz, Vice President of giant Merck (10.000 millions in R&D) https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/a ... 2517309733

The result of the construction field is understandable because its an area in which very little is spent on R&D. At least when compared to Huawei that last year spent 14.000 millions to produce 2398 patents (5 million/patent).
