CCS Project

Leilac 1

LEILAC stands for: Low Emissions Intensity Lime & Cement. The LEILAC 1 project aimed to prove a breakthrough technology (Calix Technology) that can capture a cement or lime plant’s unavoidable process emissions for minimal energy. In this context, a pilot plant was developed in 2019 at the HeidelbergCement plant in Lixhe, Belgium where it was demonstrated that Calix Technology is able to successfully separate the CO₂ in a cost competitive way.
