Cemex Deutschland partners with Enertrag & Sunfire for CO2-to-fuel project
Cemex Deutschland partners with Enertrag and Sunfire has announced a cement industry decarbonisation project called Concrete Chemicals. This would help in the realisation of the plant’s 2030 carbon neutrality target. The project will see sequestered CO2 combined with hydrogen to produce hydrocarbons for use as cement fuel.
The consortium has submitted a funding application to the German Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety for a trial at Cemex’s Rüdersdorf, Brandenburg, cement plant. Alongside a 5000t/yr demonstration plant, the site will have a green hydrogen plant, supplied by Sunfire. Planned to be commissioned by 2025, the plant will produce synthetic fuels and other hydrocarbon fractions. The consortium is also investigating a methanol synthesis route using synthetic gas.
