HeidelbergCement starts CO₂ capture project in Sweden
The HeidelbergCement Group’s Swedish subsidiary Cementa starts planning a carbon capture plant on Gotland. The project is based, among other things, on the experiences gained through Norcem’s carbon capture project in Brevik.
The goal of Langskip, which Norcem's carbon capture project is part of, is to pave the way for CCS in Europe. Today, HeidelbergCement announce that they will capture CO2 on Gotland. As much as 1.8 million tonnes of CO2 will be captured. In comparison, 400,000 tonnes will be caught in Brevik.
