Leilac is accelerating the transition to net zero by providing the most compelling decarbonisation solution for global cement and lime.

About Leilac

Leilac is the collaborative technology partner seeking to enable a sustainable future for cement and lime in a carbon neutral world.

By developing the lowest cost carbon abatement solution, we will equip producers to take urgent action against climate change and protect their industries’ jobs and prosperity. 

Operating across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, Leilac has imagined the future for sustainable cement and lime. And we’re creating it. Today.

The opportunity

Cement and lime provide the foundations of our societies and economies.

They are also amongst the largest contributors to climate change, accounting for approximately 8% of global CO₂ emissions.

Unlike other industries, most of the CO₂ produced in the manufacture of cement and lime is unavoidable. The Global Cement & Concrete Association estimates that 1.4 billion tonnes of CO₂ from cement will need to be captured and stored annually by 2050.

To preserve our planet, cement and lime producers must urgently decarbonise. To preserve our way of life, we must do so at the lowest possible cost.

Our solution

Leilac’s decarbonisation technology

Leilac’s technology is purpose built to efficiently capture unavoidable process CO2 emissions from cement and lime production, without additional chemicals or processes.

It is designed to be scalable, retrofittable, energy agnostic and electrification ready to provide flexible and economical pathways to sustainable industry.

Leilac’s technology is also being developed to deliver zero emissions lime for capture of emissions from other hard-to-abate sectors, as well as Direct Air Capture of CO2 from the atmosphere.

Key features & benefits

Low cost decarbonisation

Leilac’s reimagined approach to carbon capture is purpose built for the cement and lime industries. Our elegant solution simply keeps unavoidable process emissions pure and uncontaminated by flue gases or air, enabling Leilac to target the lowest cost solution for decarbonising cement and lime.

Efficient capture of unavoidable process emissions

With no additional chemicals or processes, our indirectly heated calcination technology efficiently separates unavoidable CO2 process emissions. Leilac’s technology requires, in principle, the same specific energy as a conventional directly heated calciner, minimising any additional energy consumption, CO2 production and cost.

Low-impact retrofit integration

Leilac’s modular technology is designed to be retrofitted and integrated into operational cement and lime plants with minimal downtime, reducing disruption and ensuring all cement and lime producers can decarbonise for a sustainable future. 

Scalable

Leilac’s modular design can be simply replicated and scaled to capture 100% of the process emissions from any cement or lime plant.

Energy agnostic & electrification ready

Leilac’s technology is designed to operate on a variety of energy sources, including electricity, alternative fuels, biomass and hydrogen, providing viable, flexible and economical pathways to net zero cement and lime. Leilac also has the potential to rapidly switch energy sources to enable grid load balancing and enhanced economic operations.

Proven & implementation ready

Leilac is actively partnering with cement and lime producers and local engineering firms around the world to deliver an efficient and rapid global roll out of our unique and proven technology, accelerating a just transition to net zero cement and lime.
