Air Liquide joins forces with Holcim to decarbonise cement production


Industrial gas major Air Liquide will work alongside Swiss-based global building materials manufacturer Holcim on a project that aims to decarbonise Holcim’s new cement production plant under development in Belgium.

The new plant will be fitted with Air Liquide’s Cryocap carbon capture technology, which could save up to 1.1 million tonnes per year of carbon dioxide (CO2) from Holcim’s cement manufacturing process.
