Green and digital – the cement plant of the future

Excessive emissions of CO2 in the cement industry are exacerbating climate change. Today’s CO2 emissions from cement plants account for seven percent of global CO2 emissions. The implementation of the Oxyfuel process could take cement plants a big step further towards achieving long-term carbon neutrality. thyssenkrupp is also working in other sectors, such as steel production with Carbon2Chem®, to isolate and reuse CO2. Both technologies use synergies from the chemical and renewable energy sectors and show that the capture, storage and utilization of CO2 to achieve carbon neutrality is not a contradiction in terms. thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions
