MHI and Kiewit selected for Heidelberg Edmonton CCUS project

Apr 12 2024

MHI Low Carbon Solutions Canada and Kiewit Energy Group have been selected together as one partner team and awarded a FEED contract for the carbon capture technology at the Edmonton CCUS project.

Heidelberg Materials North America has taken the next step in its two-stage competitive procurement process as it works to select the carbon capture technology and contractor for providing the CO2 separation solution for its Edmonton project, which is planned to be the first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement sector.

The FEED study will use MHI’s proprietary Advanced KM CDR Process™ developed jointly with The Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc., which uses the KS-21™ solvent.

“We are pleased with this latest step in advancing our Edmonton project and moving even closer to our goal of delivering the first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement sector,” said Joerg Nixdorf, Vice President Cement Operations, Northwest Region for Heidelberg Materials North America. “This latest development represents meaningful progress on the path to achieving a net-zero future.”

Heidelberg Materials North America will be commissioning the world’s first full-scale net-zero cement plant at its Edmonton location by adding CCUS technology to an already state-of-the-art facility. The plant could eventually capture and store an estimated 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. Subject to finalisation of federal and provincial funding agreements, the company anticipates the final investment decision to be taken in 2024.
