Norcem selects Aker carbon capture technology

19 November 2015, Published under Cement News

Aker Solutions won an order from Norcem for a feasibility study on the development of the world’s first commercial-scale carbon capture facility for use in cement production. Cement flue gas contains about 18 percent CO2 by volume. Initial studies have demonstrated that the carbon capture plant will be compact and cost-efficient. Heat integration studies have concluded that about half of the CO2 emission from the cement plant in Brevik can be captured by utilisation of waste heat from the c...
