Madoqua SynFuels

Posted by

In addition to the Power2X project, Madoqua Renewables also intend to build a large-scale industrial plant for the production of synthetic fuels to aid decarbonisation of hard-to-abate sectors such as the cement industry. The plant will have a capacity of 250 MW, equating to 180,000 tonnes per year of synthetic fuels and 350,000 tonnes of abated CO2.

HeidelbergCement’s newly launched ANRAV CCUS project has been selected for Grant Agreement Preparation by the EU Innovation Fund, meaning that the project’s implementation will be supported. The project will involve construction of a carbon capture facility at the Bulgarian cement plant of HeidelbergCement’s subsidiary Devnya Cement, and the subsequent transport of the captured CO2 through a pipeline system to an offshore storage site under the Black Sea.

Ste. Genevieve Cement Plant

The project aims to deliver a FEED study for a carbon capture retrofit that can separate up to 95% of CO2 emissions at the plant. The captured CO2 will be ‘pipeline ready’ for geological storage and analysis of the project socio-economic impact will also be part of the study. The Department of Energy awarded approximately $5.8 million of funding for the study.

Balcones Cement Plant

Posted by

In November 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy awarded a grant to CEMEX to develop carbon capture technology at the Balcones cement plant in Texas. According to the announcement, CEMEX partnered with Membrane Technology & Research Inc. to conduct an 18-month study and explore the potential CO2 emission reduction from installing membrane technology in the plant’s production process.

Redding Cement Plant

Posted by

HeidelbergCement’s US subsidiary Lehigh Hanson and Silicon Valley-based materials technology company Fortera have announced a collaboration to implement a new type of carbon capture and utilisation technology in a pilot installation at Lehigh’s Redding California cement facility, with an expected 60% reduction in CO2 emissions per tonne of product. CO2 will be captured from the kiln exhaust and converted into a cementitious material.

Portland Cement Plant

Posted by

Svante, Holcim, Oxy Low Carbon Ventures and Total announced a joint study to assess the viability and design of a commercial-scale carbon-capture facility at the Holcim Portland Cement Plant in Florence, Colarado. The carbon-capture facility under review will employ Svante’s technology to capture carbon CO2 and Occidental will be responsible for the sequestration.

Mitchell Cement Plant

Lehigh Hanson has received $3.7 million in funding from the DOE to conduct a FEED study retrofitting Mitsubishi Heavy Industries carbon capture technology at its new state-of-the-art cement plant in Mitchell, Indiana. The company is also contributing about $1.1 million in funding which brings the total value for the project to around $4.8 million. Commercial engineering support to the project will be provided by Sargent & Lundy.

HyNet NW Hanson Cement

Posted by

Hanson Cement became a partner of the HyNet consortium in early 2021 and plan to construct a carbon capture facility to produce net-zero cement at their Padeswood site. The project will use the HyNet infrastructure to transport and store the captured carbon. The project is one of 20 which has been shortlisted for phase-2 of the UK government CCUS cluster sequencing process.

Wabamun Carbon Hub

Posted by

Enbridge is developing the Open Access Wabamun Carbon Hub in Alberta, to support near-term carbon capture projects being advanced by project partners Capital Power and Lehigh Cement. Once built, the Hub will be among the largest integrated CCS projects in the world and can be scaled to meet the needs of other nearby industrial emitters. In addition, Enbridge has agreed to offer a significant equity interest in the hub’s CO2 transportation and storage infrastructure to local Indigenous communities.

South Wales Industrial Cluster

Posted by

South Wales is the second biggest industrial and power emitter of carbon in the UK, with over 16 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum. Around 90% of those emissions are produced by 3 companies – all of which are involved in the South Wales Industrial Cluster. The cluster is jointly funded by project partners and Innovate UK, supporting the initial phases of project development up to FEED studies.
