FLSmidth and Carbon8 Programs sign technological know-how partnership

3 min read

FLSmidth, the international supplier of sustainable solutions and services to the cement industry, 
has signed a global commercial partnership with Uk-based Carbon8 Systems (C8S) to accelerate the cement industry’s Net Zero ambitions. 

Carbon capture is essential to obtain a sustainable world cement industry – which currently accounts for 7-8{888a2f61c345d2e855d0f46d172f155075abed3efdb13b6aef551f16df00e7f6} of world wide carbon emissions – and provide on FLSmidth’s MissionZero pledge to enable zero emission production by 2030. 
Doing the job with the UK’s C8S, FLSmidth will use its world-wide community to extend the access of C8S’ carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) solution. C8S’ technologies, already deployed at a VICAT cement plant in France, will take CO2 directly from method gasses and merge it with bypass dust from the manufacturing to manufacture a lightweight mixture which can be utilised in construction. 
Carsten Riisberg Lund, Cement President for FLSmidth said: “The cement field is pursuing every single feasible alternative to minimize its environmental footprint. Carbon capture and utilisation is one such technological innovation, with a huge opportunity, that has arrived at professional maturity in the latest many years.” 
“The mix of C8S’ advanced carbonation technology and our extensive system knowledge will make a considerable contribution to the cement industry’s Internet Zero ambitions.” 
“FLSmidth will function closely with C8S to accelerate the implementation of its technology and we will attract on our in-depth know-how, our products and our international presence. This arrangement is a significant leap forward in our joint initiatives to produce on the sustainability ambitions for the global cement industry.” 
John Pilkington, CEO of C8S said: “We are delighted that FLSmidth has entered into a professional partnership with Carbon8 Systems. FLSmidth’s strong reputation in the worldwide cement business, blended with their international existence, will facilitate our progress and area C8S at the heart of the cement industry’s efforts to access Net Zero.” 
The partnership is in result as of today and in a joint webinar in October 2021, both companies will lay out the plan for the commercialisation of their partnership.

Carbon8 Systems  
C8S’s sophisticated carbonation technological innovation is a process which occurs by natural means in the atmospheric circumstances. If still left in the open, compounds this kind of as calcium or magnesium oxides, hydroxides, or silicates will react with the carbon dioxide. On the other hand, this course of action is incredibly sluggish – taking area in excess of tens of decades. C8S’s technology accelerates this system in a controlled way and in doing so, has established just one of the worlds few economically viable forms of carbonation and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU).  Accelerated Carbonation Know-how (ACT) mineralises and stabilises these industrial by-goods or residues to develop a granular reliable. C8S’s know-how about the carbonation process indicates that it is equipped to control the actual physical characteristics of the stop-item.  The stop-product or service has numerous worthwhile purposes, these kinds of as aggregates for development, or agricultural fertiliser. For highest efficacy, the most reactive residues have to have to be higher in calcium or magnesium oxide, hydroxide, or silicates.  

The company’s patented CCU alternative is known as the CO2ntainer system a modular, containerised alternative (carbon capture in a box), it is related in dimension to a delivery container so can be conveniently transported by HGV to web page.
