HeidelbergCement has announced that it is entering into a partnership with Joule, a pioneer of liquid fuels from recycled CO2, in order to explore the application of Joule’s technology to mitigate carbon emissions in cement manufacturing. This partnership represents another example of HeidelbergCement’s sustained dedication to leveraging innovative technologies and programmes for climate protection.
As part of the agreement, emissions from various HeidelbergCement plants could provide Joule with the waste CO2 required to feed its advanced Helioculture platform that effectively recycles CO2 back into useable fuel. If successful, the partnership could, over time, result in the collocation of Joule’s Helioculture Technology at one or more HeidelbergCement sites around the world.
"We've been focused on lowering carbon emissions for more than two decades, and we are excited to take further steps to lower our CO2 emissions by working with a dedicated organisation with state-of-the-art technology that is committed to protecting the climate," said Jan Theulen, Director Alternative Resources, HeidelbergCement. "Joule's process, which effectively recycles waste CO2 into liquid fuels, is a perfect match for HeidelbergCement and our core values, and we look forward to starting the journey towards a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship."
