LafargeHolcim to explore carbon capture and storage
By Leila Steed10 February 2021
Global construction materials company LafargeHolcim and energy technology firm Schlumberger New Energy are to collaborate on large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) products.
CCS is the process of capturing waste carbon dioxide and transporting it to a storage site to prevent it from entering the atmosphere.
The technology-driven partnership will see the companies experiment with using Schlumberger’s technologies to capture carbon at LafargeHolcim’s cement plants. A feasibility study based on one of LafargeHolcim’s European plants and at a second North American site will be conducted using Schlumberger’s carbon sequestration technology.
