KBR will provide FEED services for the initial stage of the project which aims to develop and deploy Carbon Clean’s breakthrough modular carbon capture technology – CycloneCC – to initially capture 100 tonnes per day (TPD) of carbon dioxide (CO2) at the cement plant.
We look forward to working with KBR on this next stage of our breakthrough project for CEMEX. Our fully modular and scalable carbon capture technology will play a significant role in helping cement companies achieve their decarbonization ambitions. Scale is the biggest challenge facing any emerging clean technology business and this project is pivotal to ramping up industrial adoption, said Aniruddha Sharma, Chair and CEO of Carbon Clean.
The captured CO2 will be combined with green hydrogen to produce synthetic hydrocarbons that can be used in other industries.
KBR is extremely pleased to support CEMEX on the road to decarbonizing its cement production. The deep engineering expertise KBR has will help bring Carbon Clean’s innovative technology to life. Reaching net zero targets requires expertise from different industries to work together and we make a powerful team. Hopefully, it will be the first of many such projects, said Jay Ibrahim, President of Global Technology Solutions at KBR.
CEMEX Zement is part of CEMEX Deutschland AG in turn part of CEMEX Europe, the European arm of Mexico-headed global construction materials company CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V.
Carbon Clean and CEMEX have agreed to work together to optimize CycloneCC for the cement industry and in May this year existing investor, CEMEX Ventures, was among eight investors in its record US$150 million Series C round.
CEMEX is planning to increase the CO2 capture by an additional 300 TPD by 2026 and to ultimately capture up to 2 000 TPD as part of its strategy to achieve carbon neutrality at the Rüdersdorf plant by 2030.
CEMEX is delighted to be partnering with Carbon Clean and KBR at our Rüdersdorf cement plant where we recently inaugurated the ‘Carbon Neutral Alliance’. This alliance aims to accelerate the development of innovative technologies to transform CEMEX’s Rüdersdorf plant into the first carbon-neutral cement facility by 2030, said Sergio Menendez, Regional President for CEMEX EMEA.
Breakthrough decarbonization technologies will bring the world closer to climate neutrality, and each step towards this goal is made easier through cooperation with our business partners. We will continue to develop partnerships with an alliance of world class industrial experts and with governmental authorities who are as committed as we are to decarbonization, ended Sergio Menendez.
