LOW EMISSIONS INTENSITY LIME AND CEMENT 2: DEMONSTRATION SCALE

Project description

Very-low-cost carbon capture option

Concrete is a highly durable material and, when used effectively, it helps buildings to be extremely energy efficient. Due to global population growth and increasing urbanisation, demand is set to increase. However, cement production is CO2-intensive (8 % of global CO2 emissions). The majority of these CO2 emissions are released directly and unavoidably from the processing of the raw materials – not from the combustion of fossil fuels. The EU-funded LEILAC2 project is piloting new technology that re-engineers the existing process flows by indirectly heating the limestone. Building on the success of the first LEILAC Horizon 2020 project (capturing around 5 % of a typical cement plant’s process CO2 emissions), this project seeks to scale up to around 20 % of a typical cement plant’s process CO2 emissions in a deployable and scalable module.
