De-Carbonization of Cement Sector through CCUS


De-Carbonization of Cement Sector through CCUS

14 October 2021

4:00 PM to 5.30 PM (Manila time)

Asian Development Bank (ADB) has been supporting Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) for more than 10 years in Asia through dedicated carbon capture and storage fund. Since the inception of the fund, ADB has carried out several promotional activities including conferences, study tours, pre-feasibility reports as well as pilot project preparations.

Based on its experience, ADB realized that CCUS may be a very effective tool in hard to abate industrial sectors like Cement. ADB published Background Study on CCUS Readiness in Power, Iron, and Steel, Cement, and Petroleum Sectors for the greenfield projects in 2019. As energy and emission-intensive industry; Cement has an opportunity to reduce global GHG emissions by 5 to 8%. Considering this thought, ADB took the initiative to work with the industry and explore the preliminary feasibility of a making CO2-derived product.

In order to make the study realistic, it took the help of M/s Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited (DCBL), India who permitted ADB to share their data for the purpose of this study. M/s Dalmia Cement (Bharat) Limited worked with ADB’s team of consultants and evaluated CO2-derived products based on a quantitative matrix. The evaluation helped in the selection of Urea as a CO2-derived product.

The consultant team used the data provided by DCBL and prepared a techno-commercial pre-feasibility report. The webinar will discuss the findings of this study.
