This video is a time lapse of Project LEILAC’s structure construction from the beginning to the ribbon cutting!… a significant step in enabling Direct Separation to become one of the principal methods of capturing the carbon emissions from the lime and cement industries… and another step towards Paris climate goals.
The demand for cement and lime is set to continue to increase, driven by the long-term growth of the global economy and development of many markets across the world.
The cement sector accounts for around 7% of carbon dioxide emissions, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA).
In order to reach the EU’s target to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050, carbon capture technologies will need to be applied to the majority of European cement plants, and LEILAC is uniquely placed to support Europe to achieve these targets in a timely, effective and efficient manner.
LEILAC will pilot a breakthrough carbon capture technology that would enable both Europe’s cement and lime industries to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions dramatically without significant energy or capital penalty.Find out more about LEILAC
