Heidelberg Materials Reaches New Milestone In Edmonton CCUS Project - Carbon Herald

Heidelberg Materials North America announced an important new development in its carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) in Edmonton, Canada.

The project is set to become the world’s first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement industry, and the significant milestone Heidelberg Materials has reached in it is the award of a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the carbon capture technology to Technip Energies.

Technip Energies is a global leader in providing carbon capture solutions and has been expanding its presence in the sector in leaps and bounds over the last months with notable projects in its portfolio including the Viking CCS project in the UK and the Carbon Centric Rakkestad project in Norway.

Joerg Nixdorf, Vice President Cement Operations, Northwest Region for Heidelberg Materials North America said: “We are excited to take this latest step in our journey to produce the world’s first net-zero cement. With each milestone we come closer to realizing our vision of leading the decarbonization of the cement industry.”

Christophe Malaurie, SVP Decarbonization Solutions for Technip Energies, in turn, expressed Technip’s enthusiasm to be working with Heidelberg Materials North America on the company’s project in Edmonton.

“Leveraging our carbon capture solution powered by the Shell CANSOLV® CO2 capture system, we are committed to supporting the decarbonization of the cement industry and Heidelberg towards the production of net-zero cement,” Malaurie said.

Once the project becomes operational, as scheduled for late 2026, it will have the capacity to capture and store a staggering 1 million metric tons of CO2 emissions per year.
