The CEMCAP project is funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme as part of grant agreement number 641185. CEMCAP pursues establishment of the conditions necessary for using carbon capture and storage technologies in the European cement industry. Presentations from the second ECRA/CEMCAP workshop held in November 2017 can be downloaded here.

The CEMCAP film now released details the project’s goals and background and documents a number of project stages. It is available for download here.


The CLEANKER project, brought to life in 2017, is also funded from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme (grant agreement number 764816). CLEANKER is engaged in testing carbon capture by calcium looping at industrial scale.

By using CO2 capture technologies, Europe’s cement industry could contribute substantially to climate protection, particularly in respect to future reductions of process-related CO2-emissions.
