Carbon capture from cement production

Membrane-based technology developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology  is one of four technologies that may be used in a full-scale CO2 capture project in a cement factory.

Gassnova, Norway’s state-funded effort to develop carbon capture and storage technologies for commercial use, has identified Norcem’s cement plant in Brevik and Yara’s ammonia plant in Porsgrunn as the most promising candidates for a full-scale CCS demonstration project in Norway.

“We’ve shown that membrane technology works, and are hoping it will be included in the next test phase in Brevik,” says May-Britt Hgg, a professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology’s department of Chemical Engineering.

“If we succeed here, we’ll have a prototype that will be of interest to both power stations and industry,” she adds.

Norcem’s cement factory in Brevik is the fourth largest point source of emissions in Norway, releasing nearly 800,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.

Yara in Porsgrunn is in fifth place, with roughly 560,000 tonnes.
