Carbon Capture Coalition represents more than 90 companies, unions, conservation and environmental policy organisations, to build federal policy around commercial scale deployment of carbon management technologies.
The Carbon Capture Coalition Governance Board unanimously approved the membership of Holcim US, the nation’s leading cement and concrete building materials provider. Holcim is the first and only cement and concrete company to join the Coalition.
Convened by the Great Plains Institute, the Coalition is a nonpartisan collaboration comprised of more than 90 companies, unions and environmental policy organisations, building federal policy support for carbon capture technology deployment.
“Being at the forefront of developing low carbon solutions requires continuous innovative thinking and partnerships,” said Toufic Tabbara, Region Head North America, Holcim. “Our efforts are most effective when we can align and join forces with other companies and organisations across industries who share this same commitment. We are proud to be part of an organisation that is similarly focused toward more efficient, innovative and sustainable practices.”
Holcim has made significant investments in the development of low carbon solutions and has been actively developing carbon capture feasibility studies. With significant support and grants from the United States Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL), Holcim is assessing the viability and design of a commercial-scale carbon capture facility. The two studies are in collaboration with research institutions and corporate partners and being conducted at the Portland cement plant in Colorado, and the Ste. Genevieve cement plant in Missouri.
“As the world’s leading provider of building materials and solutions, Holcim’s commitment to deploying carbon management technologies is a perfect fit for the work of the Coalition,” said Jessie Stolark, Public Policy & Member Relations Manager for the Carbon Capture Coalition. “Scaling these technologies in the cement and concrete sector is not optional if we are to fulfill our climate obligations. Holcim’s leadership and commitment to net-zero emissions will be a tremendous asset to the Coalition. We look forward to working with Holcim as we continue to highlight the central role that carbon management technologies will play in meeting mid-century climate goals, decarbonising domestic manufacturing and industry, and retaining and expanding a high-wage jobs base.”
The Coalition’s mission to?reduce carbon emissions is in alignment with Holcim’s focus on enabling greener cities, empowering smarter infrastructure and improving living standards. To do so, Holcim offers a range of low-carbon and innovative cement, concrete, aggregates and asphalt products and services through operations in 43 states.
