Sustainable technology company Cool Planet Technologies Limited (CPT) will push for decarbonisation efforts using membrane gas separation technology along with Holcim Deutschland GmbH (Holcim).
In conjunction with partner Helmholtz-Zentrum hereon GmbH (Hereon), the companies plan to build a carbon dioxide (CO2) capture plant at Holcim’s Hover cement works near Hannover.
The plant will harness Hereon’s PolyActive membrane technology, which uses a selective barrier material that filters some gases but allows through CO2. The low-cost solution is passive and requires less energy, in addition to being easily scalable, providing a suitable option for retrofitting or ‘end of pipe’ projects.
With cement production contributing to 8% of the world’s annual CO2 emissions, the location of the plant is no coincidence.
