Cement Industry Challenges
Cement is the world’s leading construction material — but it’s also one of the key drivers of climate change, responsible for around 8% of global CO2 emissions. Carbon Capture and Storage is a vital technology to decarbonise cement manufacture, as up to 70% of CO2 emissions in the sector come from the chemical process of calcining calcium carbonate—which can’t be reduced with other methods.
Utilising Captured CO2 to Become Carbon Negative
Captured CO2 can be utilised to create carbon-negative green cement, transforming emitted carbon into a raw material for production. Cement producers can achieve up to a 7% reduction in cementitious content, resulting in signiﬁcant cost savings.
Capturing CO2 from a Mix of Fuel Sources
Variations in flue gas quality and NOx and SOx components can impact the stability of solvents. Carbon Clean’s experience and high-quality technology enable us to treat and condition flue gases of varying qualities to produce even food-grade CO2.
A Roadmap to Achieve
Cement manufacturers need the technology, expertise, and guidance to implement affordable and scalable solutions that help them achieve their net zero carbon emission goals. We're on the path to net zero together.
Modularised and containerised solutions make it easy to scale your carbon capture system to your plant's unique requirements. Image use with kind permission of Doosan Babcock Limited and Newcastle University.

Carbon Clean's proprietary solvent formulations provide better carbon capture results. They can be used as a drop-in substitute in existing systems or with an integrated carbon capture system.
"Accomplishing CO2 capture at an industrial scale and affordable cost is one of the biggest challenges that CEMEX is facing in its road to deliver net-zero CO2 concrete products globally by 2050. Partnering with Carbon Clean seemed like a perfect fit for us. We believe in their technology and know that working together, we can make possible a more cost-effective carbon capture solution below the $30/tonne threshold."

The processing stage in refineries contributes approximately 5 to 10% of the total CO2 emissions in an oil product's lifecycle. However, the opportunity to reduce this impact is significant, given the nature of the processes involved. Major players in the industry are already pledging to achieve net zero by 2050.
