Italy's biggest gas distributor Italgas signed an agreement with cement maker Buzzi Unicem to study the decarbonisation of cement production processes, the companies said in a joint statement on Tuesday.

They said the review would evaluate the feasibility of implementing Power to Gas plants in combination with Carbon Capture Systems at Buzzi's production facilities, in order to increase environmental sustainability.
