Heidelberg Materials Changes Plans For LEILAC-2 Carbon Capture Project - Carbon Herald

Heidelberg Materials and Australian environmental technology company Calix Limited have announced that the LEILAC-2 (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement) carbon capture research project is now planned to be carried out at Heidelberg Materials’ Ennigerloh cement plant.

The project was previously supposed to be realised at the Heidelberg Materials site in Hanover, Germany. Now that clinker production will end there in the second half of 2024, another location had to be found.

The LEILAC-2 project aims to demonstrate a scalable solution for the efficient capture of unavoidable carbon dioxide emissions released during cement and lime production at Heidelberg Materials.

The project’s objective is to demonstrate a retrofittable module that can efficiently capture up to 100,000 tons of unavoidable carbon dioxide emissions per year. The module is designed to be integrated and operated in an operational cement plant with minimal downtime.
