Alternatives to CCS in the Norwegian cement industry

2020-12-3  the Norwegian cement industry . Publis. hed: 28/11/20 . The investment decision by the Norwegian Government laid the foundation for CCS as a GHG mitigation measure in Norway. However, political and technological uncertainty may still require us to explore other GHG mitigation measures in e.g. the cement industry.

Norway Cement industry news from Global Cement

2020-9-22  Norway: The Norwegian Parliament has voted in favour of the government’s proposed grant of funding for industrial scale implementation of full-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) at HeidelbergCement subsidiary Norcem’s Brevik cement plant. Work on the project is expected to start immediately, with the goal of starting CO 2 separation from the cement production process by 2024.

How is the cement sector approaching carbon

2018-11-8  One of the key sustainability challenges currently facing the cement industry is the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO 2) emissions. CO 2 is a by-product of cement, and therefore, concrete production; it is released when fossil fuels are burnt to heat up the raw material and when the limestone is calcined in the production process.
