Bringing Carbon Capture Project To Canada

This sounds promising, even the cement producers are paying attention of what was going on around them.
LafargeHolcim is improving the carbon-efficiency of its cement with the launch of the CO₂MENT partnership project with Inventys and Total.

According to LafargeHolcim, the project’s objective is to build the world’s first full-cycle solution to capture and reuse CO2 from a cement plant while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“LafargeHolcim is committed to reducing CO2 emissions and we are excited to join forces with Inventys and Total through Project CO₂MENT. We hope to discover ways to capture emissions from our production processes and reuse them in our products, advancing a circular economy even further than today,” said René Thibault, Region Head North America.

Over the next four years, Project CO₂MENT will demonstrate and evaluate Inventys’ CO₂ Capture System and a selection of LafargeHolcim’s carbon utilization technologies at its Richmond, BC, cement plant.

The project’s three phases will work on purifying the cement flue gas in preparation for CO2 capture; focus on the separation of CO2 from flue gas using a customized for cement version of Inventys’ carbon capture technology at pilot scale; and prepare the captured CO2 for reuse and support the economical assessment and demonstration of CO2 conversion technologies onsite.
