In the third Episode of INNOVATING FOR THE EARTH, innovation expert and radio and TV presenter James O’Loghlin talks with Daniel Rennie, the General Manager of Cement Decarbonisation at Calix about how Calix Carbon Capture technology is helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
To respond to the threat of climate change, and reach the EU’s target of reducing carbon emissions by 60% by 2030, and becoming carbon neutral by 2050, carbon capture technologies will need to be applied to most European cement plants to ensure that carbo dioxide is not released into the atmosphere.
James and Daniel discuss how Calix’s LEILAC project is capturing carbon dioxide emissions more efficiently, and dramatically reducing process-related emissions in the cement industry, and how this pioneering work might be applied more widely across the industry to reduce emissions and help Europe achieve its’ carbon reduction targets.
Daniel Rennie is the coordinator of the LEILAC project, which started in January 2016 and is led by Calix. He enjoys working with the dedicated and enthusiastic staff within Calix and project partners, which include leading industrial, engineering, R&D and consulting organisations.
LEILAC will deliver a stepchange in the efficiency of capturing CO2 emissions. See www.project-leilac.eu for more information and follow it on twitter under ‘ProjectLEILAC’.
