Cemex USA and research institute RTI International have received a $3.7m grant from the US Department of Energy to advance carbon capture technology in cement manufacturing.
The 18-month, front-end engineering design (FEED) study, which is to be conducted at Cemex’ Balcones Cement Plant in New Braunfels, Texas, is expected to determine and assess the overall costs of the integration of a 670,000 tonne-carbon dioxide (CO2) per year commercial-scale carbon capture system into the manufacturing process.
Other partners include SLB, a global technology company and the licensor for RTI’s non-aqueous solvent (NAS) capture technology.
The agreement will help fund an innovative carbon capture study utilising RTI’s non-aqueous amine technology as it seeks to set emission reduction standards for the cement industry.
