Aker Solutions Inks $57.6Mn Carbon Capture Deal (Int'l. Report)
Aker Solutions
Date: 2020-12-23
Aker Solutions reports receipt of a roughly $57.6 million contract from its spin-off Aker Carbon Capture for engineering, procurement, and management assistance for a CO2 capture plant at Heidelberg Cement-owned Norcem's cement plant in Brevik, Norway.

The project, part of Norway's Longship project, will start in January 2021 for completion in 2024 and will capture roughly 400,000 metric tpy of CO2.

For the project, Aker Carbon Capture is responsible for the delivery of a complete new facility for capture, intermittent storage, and offloading of CO2, with integrated waste-heat recovery. Aker Solutions' scope includes engineering, procurement, and management assistance for the new installation.

HeidelbergCement Driving LEILAC CO2 Separation Project (Int'l.)
HeidelbergCement
Date: 2020-04-01
HeidelbergCement, the world's fourth largest cement maker, reports it is partnering with Australian calcination technology firm Calix and a European consortium to further develop Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement (LEILAC) technology and scale the technology up to industrial levels.

The patented LEILAC process makes it possible to capture high-purity CO2 from cement production via a separate exhaust gas stream and to utilize the CO2 for other purposes. As part of LEILAC 1, a CO2 separation pilot plant with a capacity of 25,000 tpy was constructed at the HeidelbergCement plant in Lixhe, Belgium. The project has €16 million is support from the EU research funding programme Horizon 2020.

HeidelbergCement has committed to reduce its own specific net CO2 emissions per tonne of cement by 30 pct, compared with 1990, by 2030. This target has been approved by the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) and is in line with the goals of the Paris Agreement, making HeidelbergCement the first cement company worldwide to have approved science-based CO2 reduction targets.

The cement sector accounts for around 7 pct of global CO2 emissions, according to the International Energy Agency (Source: Heidelberg Cement, Ag-Net, 31 Mat., 2020) Contact: HeidelbergCement, Dr Bernd Scheifele, CEO, Jan Theulen, Director Alternative Resources, www.heidelbergcement.com;

Norwegian CCS Project Announces Major Participants (Int'l. Report)
Equinor,Gassnova
Date: 2019-09-09
In Oslo, Norway's Equinor is reporting steel maker ArcelorMittal, Heidelberg Cement, the Swedish refiner Preem, and the Finish energy firm Fortum Oyi are among the firms signing Memorandums of Agreement (MoU) on joining the Norwegian government's Northern Lights underground carbon dioxide (CO2) storage project offshore Norway. The CCS project is led by Equinor in partnership with Shell and the French energy giant Total.

Industry's commitment is considered crucial for the Norwegian government's investment in the project, which aims at capturing and storing up to 5 million tonnes of CO2 from various industrial sites onshore. The project is expected to cost between $802 million and $1.4 billion to establish a full CCS chain. To date, Norway has spent roughly $92 million on the project which could start operations in 2023 or 2024, according to a Gassnova, a governmental agency in charge of CCS development, report.(Source: Equinor, Gassnova, Reuters, 5 Sept., 2019) Contact: Equinor, Eldar Saetre , CEO, www.equinor.com/en; HeidelbergCement, Dr Bernd Scheifele, CEO, Jan Theulen, Director Alternative Resources, www.heidelbergcement.com; Fortum Oyi, www3.fortum.com; PREEM, Petter Holland, CEO, Pres., +46 (0) 10 459 1000, www.preem.se/en/in-english

Calix Reports CO2 Capture Technology Test Success (Int'l Report
Calix
Date: 2019-08-02
NSW Australia-based Calix Ltd. is reporting Project LEILAC (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement), featuring Calix's CO2 capture technology for lime and cement, has been commissioned and is operating after preliminary testing at Heidelberg Cement's plant at Lixhe in eastern Belgium.

The project consortium includes the world's largest lime and cement companies, with Calix as the core technology provider and project leader.

Construction of the €21 million project was completed in early May. The project, which received €12 million from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, is part of the EU's target of reducing CO2 emissions by 80 pct below 1990 levels by 2050. To that end, European cement industry needs to deploy carbon capture across 60 pct of its plants.

Calix's patented "Direct Separation" carbon capture technology will enable Europe's cement and lime industries to reduce their CO2 emissions dramatically without significant energy or capital penalty. The technology works on both lime and cement meal, with calcination near to target levels and CO2 of more than 95 pct purity successfully separated at the top of the reactor, although not yet at full design capacity. which will be tested until the end of 2020.
