Cementing carbon capture

Worley and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group will undertake a front-end engineering and design (FEED) project by Heidelberg Materials UK. 

The project will support the development of a carbon capture facility at Heidelberg Materials’ cement works at Padeswood, North Wales, marking the first of its kind in the UK.

Cement is an essential building material for global construction, but its production is highly carbon intensive and not easily abatable by low CO2 or renewable energy sources. This means carbon capture and storage is key for reducing these emissions. Once operational, it is anticipated to capture up to 800,000 tonnes of CO2 annually – the equivalent of taking 320,000 cars off the road – and will play a crucial role in the decarbonisation efforts of the UK cement industry.
