Site-visit to cement-factory for CO2-capture demonstration

The technical team of DTU – the ConsenCUS partner involved in the construction of the demonstration plant-  made a visit to Aalborg Portland. Aalborg Portland, a leading site in the CEMENTIR holding with regard to sustainable activities and CO2 emission savings, is the first industry where the ConsenCUS technique will be installed and tested. The actual installation will take place at the end of 2023, but both parties are already heavily engaged in discussing the site requirements, possible locations and outline of the pilot plant, so to make full use of the testing period.  

“The Aalborg Portland site is a perfect proving ground for the CO2 capture and utilization plant we’ll build. It gives us a golden opportunity to validate the plant functionality and to train our personnel for the subsequent Romanian and the Greek campaigns.” 

Uffe Bihlet, Project Manager, DTU

The visits to the Romanian and Greek sites are also planned in the first half year of 2022. These visits will provide an insight to where the best suitable location for the demonstration plant will be and ensure that further developments can be planned. Al three sites have particular aspects that need to be taken into account. This makes the planning and developing phase a very important aspect in the beginning of the project.
