In the fourth Episode, James O’Loghlin talks with Simon Thomsen, Project Engineer at Calix and responsible for the R&D on the LEILAC 2 project about how LEILAC Carbon Capture technology is applied to the cement industry.
The LEILAC technology is based on Calix’s Direct Separation technology, which aims to enable the efficient capture of the unavoidable process carbon emissions, derived from its original application in the magnesite industry. Applying and scaling up the technology to the cement industry carries a large number of risks. To quickly and effectively apply this technology, the European-Australian collaboration LEILAC projects include consortia of some of the world’s largest cement, and lime companies, as well as leading research and environmental institutions.
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’.
