Carbon Clean, a global leader in cost-effective carbon capture solutions, has awarded a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) contract to global engineering experts KBR for a new carbon capture project.
This facility will be built at at CEMEX’s Rüdersdorf plant in Germany.
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 CO2 at the plant.
The captured CO2 will be combined with green hydrogen to produce synthetic hydrocarbons that can be used in other industries.
Jay Ibrahim, KBR president Global Technology Solutions, said: “KBR is extremely pleased to support CEMEX on the road to decarbonising 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.”
Aniruddha Sharma, chair and CEO of Carbon Clean, said: “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 decarbonisation ambitions. Scale is the biggest challenge facing any emerging clean technology business and this project is pivotal to ramp up industrial adoption.”
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.
Sergio Menendez, Regional President for CEMEX EMEA, added: “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.”
