The world’s first carbon captured net-zero cement

Construction materials company Heidelberg Materials introduces what they say is the world’s first carbon captured net-zero cement.

Called evoZero, the cement makes use of carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) technology. The cement will be available in two versions, depending on customer location.

evoZero Carbon Captured Brevik is directly delivered from the Brevik CCS plant in Norway, achieving its net-zero footprint over the entire life cycle. Customers in other European countries may choose evoZero Carbon Captured, which will be delivered from plants close-by, while leveraging the unique carbon saving attributes realised in Brevik. evoZero Carbon Captured features a net-zero footprint upon delivery. For both products, the carbon capture attributes are transparent and traceable by harnessing the power of blockchain technology.

Brevik CCS is the world’s first carbon capture facility in a cement plant on a large scale. Mechanical completion of the facility is scheduled for the end of 2024. Once operational, 400,000 tonnes of CO2 per year will be captured and stored.
