Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited and Carbon Clean Solutions team up to build one of the cement industry’s largest carbon capture plant

Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited, a leading Indian cement major and a subsidiary of Dalmia Bharat Limited, has announced that it will build a large scale facility of 500000 t/a carbon capture at its cement plant at Tamil Nadu/India. Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL) U.K., a leader in low-cost carbon dioxide (CO2) separation technology to provide technology and operational services for the plant based on its patented CDRMax Technology.

Currently, small-scale carbon capture plants have been commissioned in a few cement plants in China and Europe. However, a large-scale demonstration plant of this capacity has not yet been planned or announced in the cement industry. Dalmia Cement and CCSL will explore multiple utilization streams for the CO2 that is captured from this large-scale plant, including direct sale for use in other industries, and manufacture of chemicals.In another industry first, Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited, was invited to speak at the Climate Action Summit of the UN Secretary-General on 23.09.2019 to share their commitment to being carbon negative by 2040. The company announced a slew of measures to take its sustainability leadership to the next level by creating new benchmarks in green cement manufacturing at a global level.
