Research company CI4C to investigate use of polysius® pure oxyfuel

12 March 2021, Published under Cement News

The four European cement manufacturers Buzzi Unicem-Dyckerhoff, HeidelbergCement AG, Schwenk Zement KG and Vicat plan to investigate the industrial-scale use of Oxyfuel carbon capture technology in cement production in a demonstration plant. Hence, the research company "CI4C - Cement Innovation for Climate" was established. The aim is to capture 100 per cent of the CO 2 and use it with the help of renewable energies to produce so-called 'refuels', ie climate-neutral synthetic fuels such a...

CI4C consortium makes progress with carbon capture project

19 November 2020, Published under Cement News

The pilot project "catch4climate", for which four cement manufacturers have joined forces, is set to capture CO 2 at the site of the Mergelstetten cement plant in southern Germany. For this, the consortium intends to build and operate its own demonstration plant on a semi-industrial scale, where the oxyfuel process will be applied for CO 2 capture. The captured CO 2 will then be used to produce "reFuels", climate-neutral synthetic fuels such as kerosene for air traffic, with the help of r...

ECRA to test oxyfuel on industrial scale with two pilot projects

30 January 2018, Published under Cement News

Based on extensive research undertaken by the European Cement Research Academy (ECRA),
 oxyfuel technology will now be implemented in two cement plants in Europe. "The technical feasibility of oxyfuel technology can only be proven in real-scale application, but we have sufficient information from our research to believe that we will obtain a positive result after the trials," said Daniel Gauthier, chairman of ECRA. Over the past few months ECRA has examined the suitability of sites tha...
