The CLEANKER project aims at demonstrating at TRL 7 the calcium looping (CaL) technology, which is one of the most promising technologies for CO2 capture in cement plants. More specifically by 2023, the project will result in the design, construction and operation of a CaL demonstration system in the cement plant operated by Buzzi Unicem which is sited in Vernasca (Piacenza, Italy).
