Cement production represents 7-8% of the global CO2 emission – carbon capture technologies are essential to reduce that number and meet the targets of the Paris Agreement.
The new collaboration between FLSmidth and Chart joins the two companies’ efforts to adapt and commercialize Chart’s Cryogenic Carbon CaptureTM (CCC) for customers in the cement industry. CCC is an advanced post-combustion technology developed by Sustainable Energy Solutions (SES), a Chart company. CCC utilizes equipment manufactured by Chart and its affiliates to capture CO2 from exhaust gas at very high rates and produce it as a high-purity liquid ready for storage and use.
Working with Chart, FLSmidth will use its global reach and process knowledge to accelerate the commercialization of CCC and optimize the design of the technology for the cement industry. The ambition is to reduce over 90% of carbon emissions from industrial sources at half the cost and energy of current carbon capture processes.
Carbon capture technology is a cornerstone in FLSmidth’s MissionZero sustainability ambition of providing the solutions needed to move the cement industry towards zero CO2 emission by 2030.
