Adam Vincent, General Manager – Lime decarbonisation at Calix, is presenting a LEILAC Virtual Tour at the Carbon Capture, Utilization & Storage Virtual Forum 2021.
The Carbon Capture, Storage & Utilization Virtual Forum examines the latest technology advances, business models, research findings, and real-world applications for capturing, storing and utilizing carbon dioxide.
The LEILAC project is based on a technology called Direct Separation, which aims to enable the efficient capture of the unavoidable process emissions from lime and cement production.
Calix’s technology re-engineers the existing process flows of a traditional calciner, indirectly heating the limestone via a special steel vessel. This unique system enables pure CO2 to be captured as it is released from the limestone, as the furnace exhaust gases are kept separate. It is also a solution which requires no additional chemicals or processes, and requires minimal changes to the conventional processes for cement as it simply replaces the calciner.Find out more about LEILAC
Since joining Calix Adam has overseen the building and commissioning of both the CFC850 (pilot) and CFC15000 (commercial) calciners together with site facilities that house R&D, maintenance and office activities.
In January 2021 Adam moved into the role of General Manager – Lime decarbonisation, where he is responsible for the commercial exploitation of the Calix technology into the lime segment.Linkedin profile
