C-Capture featured in Heidelberg Materials’ sustainability event

C-Capture, developers of next generation technology for carbon dioxide removal, feature in a webinar by Heidelberg Materials on 2nd May focusing on the challenge of decarbonising construction projects.

Heidelberg Materials’ ‘Let’s Talk Sustainability – The Decarbonisation Challenge’ webinar is the latest in the company’s series of free online events for the construction industry. It showcases projects that demonstrate how the company is leading the construction materials industry in decarbonisation. C-Capture’s XLR8 CCS project features within the showcase as one of the projects that Heidelberg Materials are implementing to decarbonise their products. The companies are working together on an innovative carbon capture trial in the cement manufacturing sector as part of C-Capture’s XLR8 CCS project. The trial is due to start in May this year.

Working with leading industry partners – and supported through funding from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero – XLR8 CCS is demonstrating the compatibility of C-Capture’s carbon capture technology within three difficult-to-decarbonise industries.  A total of six carbon capture trials will be delivered across the energy from waste, cement and glass manufacturing industries at sites across the UK.

Tom White, CEO, C-Capture said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Heidelberg Materials on this event and our new carbon capture trial for the cement industry, which is part of our XLR8 CCS project. This project is a critical step in the race to net zero as we work with leading industry partners to demonstrate that a low-cost carbon capture solution is a reality for difficult-to-decarbonise industries.”

The live webinar runs from 14.00 to 16.30 on Thursday 2nd May and is free to attend. It is suitable for all those who work within the construction sector and have an interest in decarbonisation – including contractors, local authorities, highways professionals, architects, engineers, and housebuilders.

XLR8 CCS is funded with £1.7m from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero’s £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio. The funding is part of the £20 million Carbon Capture, Usage and Storage (CCUS) Innovation 2.0 programme aimed at accelerating the deployment of next-generation CCUS technology in the UK. Additional private sector contributions support a £2.7 million total for this multi-industry project.
