Help your plant maximise the success and reduce the cost of carbon capture

Carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is the lynchpin for the cement industry’s net zero hopes. But while you’re developing your carbon capture investment plans, you should also prepare your process to optimize the overall approach.

Key Benefits

Prepare your process to optimize your approach


Energy-intensive carbon capture

Carbon capture technologies are highly energy-intensive. These energy demands – whether thermal or electrical – can double the existing energy consumption of your cement plant. This equates to high ongoing OPEX costs in addition to the high CAPEX costs of installing a carbon capture plant. But there is potential to reduce this energy demand with a few relatively small modifications to your pyro process.

Preparing for carbon capture success

Our CCUS optimisation service helps prepare your plant for successful carbon capture. We’ll identify the simple, low-risk modifications to your pyro system that can increase the consistency of your gas flow rate and the concentration of CO2 within the process, so you can reduce the CAPEX and OPEX of a capture plant. At the end of this project, we will outline the site-specific modifications/improvements you can implement for best results.
What does CCUS optimisation include?

We’ll use our proprietary process simulation tool to model the modifications and results and even save the plant model for future reference. Therefore, if you decide you want to make further process changes, for example O2 enrichment, H2 firing, alternative fuel change, etc. you can evaluate the impact on the process and on your carbon capture plant.

The results of optimisation

After optimisation, the amount of CO2 to be captured will be the same. However, the CO2 concentration in the flue gas to the carbon capture unit will increase – making the process more efficient. As a result, the cost of capture will be reduced by 15 – 20%, depending on your specific energy costs – a saving that could equate to millions of dollars. Savings regarding your CAPEX investment may also be achieved in some cases.
