Abstract: Based on the MAP-CGE model, this paper simulates the impacts on the output, energy consumption and pollutant emission of different cement production processes when implementing the low carbon cement standard in China, calculates the impacts on the marginal abatement cost and equilibrium price of cement industry, and analyzes the co-abatement effects of different pollutants. The results show that implementing the low carbon cement standard will be beneficial to promoting the upgrading of cement production process, and strengthening the energy conservation and emission reduction in the cement industry. When reducing every ton of CO2 emission, if the existing technology keeps unchanged, the cement industry will reduce SO2 emission by 1.17 kg and NOx emission by 4.44 kg at the same time. Implementing low carbon cement standard can also promote NOx abatement in the cement industry. However, the cement industry will bear the abatement costs, and their equilibrium price will increase to a small extent.

Key words: low carbon cement standard, co-abatement effects, MAP-CGE model
