Leilac-2 moved to Ennigerloh plant

05 March 2024, Published under Cement News

Calix has confirmed that the Leilac-2 carbon capture project, which was to be installed at Heidelberg Materials’ Hanover plant in Germany, will now be constructed at the cement producer’s Ennigerloh plant, also in Germany. The decision to move the project was the result of Heidelberg Materials opting to end clinker production at the Hanover facility.  The Leilac-2 project aims to demonstrate a replicable module that can efficiently capture up to 100,000tpa of unavoidable process CO ...

Rohrdorfer Zement breaks ground on CO2 capture plant

29 February 2024, Published under Cement News

Rohrdorfer Zement is building Austria's first large-scale CO 2 recovery plant in the cement industry. Climate Protection Minister Leonore Gewessler, Provincial Councillor Markus Achleitner and Provincial Councillor Stefan Kaineder broke ground at Rohrdorfer Zement GmbH in Gmunden this week.   The plant can recover 30,000tpa of CO 2 , enabling the production of 50,000tpa of CO 2 -free cement. The plant is scheduled to go into operation in late autumn 2026.

SaltX Technology EU patent for calcium-looping solution

01 February 2024, Published under Cement News

SaltX Technology, based in Sweden, has been granted an EU patent for an electrified 'calcium looping' carbon capture solution where the company's patented Electric Arc Calciner (EAC) forms a central role.     The method means that CO 2 is captured from an emitter and bound with the help of lime and then transported to a central facility where the CO 2 is separated using the EAC technology. As a result, industries do not need to make a significant investment of their own for CO 2 separa...

Heidelberg Materials ends clinker production at Hanover

30 January 2024, Published under Cement News

Heidelberg Materials has announced that it is shutting down clinker production at its Hanover cement plant in the second half of 2024. Going forward, the company will instead focus its activities in Hanover on the end-product cement and will continue to operate the site as a grinding facility. The adjustment comes after a substantial decline in cement sales following weak construction demand in Germany due to the current economic environment, as well as a stronger alignment of the co...
