Capsol awarded feasibility studies at two large cement plants

Sep 15 2023

Capsol Technologies has been awarded feasibility studies for the CapsolEoP® (end-of-pipe) carbon capture technology at two plants in the EU with the potential to capture more than 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 per annum combined.

Cement, which is one of Capsol Technologies’ four target segments, is estimated by IEA to account for more than 300 million tonnes of captured CO2 in 2030, representing 30% of total installed carbon capture capacity. Hence, it represents the largest industry opportunity for carbon capture. 

“We are receiving firm response from the industry – a strong indication that our CapsolEoP® provides highly competitive value propositions for cement. CapsolEoP® reduces energy consumption by more than 50% compared to competing technologies, resulting in 25% lower costs per ton of CO2 captured. In addition, the CapsolEoP® is safe and not harmful to the local environment,” said Jan Kielland, CEO of Capsol Technologies.

The company owning the two cement plants has operations in more than 10 countries, with total emissions of more than 20 million tonnes of CO2 in 2022. These awards are Capsol Technologies’ third and fourth engineering studies for the cement industry. In total, Capsol currently has nine cement projects in sales engineering and engineering studies totalling a potential of about 10 million tonnes of CO2 to be captured annually.

“We are pleased that our solution is gaining attention as demonstrated by an increasing number of incoming requests for sales engineering and engineering studies and look forward to being a major contributor in the path to net zero for cement,” said Kielland.

The studies will start in Q3 2023.
