LEILAC 2 & HeidelbergCement’s pathway to carbon neutrality

07 September 2020, Published under Cement News

To support its goal to supply carbon-neutral concrete by 2050, HeidelbergCement is developing several initiatives, including the second phase of its LEILAC project. By HeidelbergCement, Germany. LEILAC-1 at HeidelbergCement’s Lixhe plant in Belgium HeidelbergCement is committed to providing carbon-neutral concrete to all its customers by 2050. Considering the impacts of COVID-19, the company has, together with many other DAX companies, urged the German government to ‘maintain cl...

LEILAC 2 to be four times the size of LEILAC 1 pilot plant

30 March 2020, Published under Cement News

Following the announcement of The Low Emissions Intensity Lime and Cement 2 (LEILAC 2) in December 2019, LEILAC 2, this plant will be around four times this size of LEILAC 1. Furthermore, LEILAC 2 is to be operated at one of HeidelbergCement's Western European plants, which has yet to be determined. The patented LEILAC process makes it possible to capture high-purity CO 2 from cement production via a separate exhaust gas stream and to utilize it for other purposes. "The LEILAC 2 project i...

LEILAC 2 is in the pipeline

19 December 2019, Published under Cement News

The success of the The Low Emissions Intensity Lime and Cement (LEILAC) project to separate and capture CO 2 from the cement production process will enable a second LEILAC 2 project to be pipelined.

 The LEILAC project, located at the Lixhe cement plant in Belgium, which started operations to capture CO 2 emissions from the cement production process using Calix technology in May 2019, will continue to be tested until the end of 2020. 

The LEILAC 2 project will have a new reactor, about ...

Cement needs collaborative approach to environmental challenges

17 May 2019, Published under Cement News

This week, HeidelbergCement reported that it was the first cement producer to have its CO 2 reduction targets validated to 2030 , while the Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement (LEILAC) pilot plant began test operations at the company's Lixhe cement works in Belgium. This landmark project, which aims to capture 95 per cent of CO 2 emissions from the kiln, is an example of the kind of collaborative industry partnerships that will be critical for the cement industry, if it is to successf...
