FLSmidth, Carbon8 Systems sign partnership to accelerate carbon capture
The global provider of sustainable solutions and services to the cement industry came into an intercontinental profitable collaboration with UK-based Carbon8 Systems (C8S) to hasten the cement industry’s Net Zero ambitions.
To attain sustainable international cement industry, carbon capture is considered to be an integral and vital aspect. This presently comes out to be 7-8 per cent of global carbon emissions.
With the help of UK’s C8S, FLSmidth will use its global power and will be able to expand the scope of C8S’ carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) solution. C8S’ technology, already positioned at a VICAT cement plant in France, takes CO2 directly from process gases and combines it with bypass dust from the production to manufacture a lightweight aggregate which can be used in construction.
The President of FLSmidth and CEO of C8S have expressed their views on this partnership.The partnership is in effect and in a joint webinar in October 2021, both companies will lay out the schemes for the commercialisation of their partnership.
