Cement Production Projects (Combined with CCUS) 


Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) is poised to play a leading role in decarbonizing the cement industry. 

The worldwide cement industry generates 7% of global anthropogenic CO2 (aCO2) emissions and has no alternative to reducing its carbon footprint but to capture that aCO2 from the calcination process and dispose it at large scale.

The cement and iron & steel industries are still new in the CCUS business. The first project appeared in 2017, but more are likely to come up in the next few years, including three clusters:

  • Athos in Holland,
  • Longship in Norway, and
  • Net Zero Teeside in UK).

However, the projects have a low carbon capture capacity (average of 0.7 Mtpa). As for example, Oxy is partnering with Total to capture 725,000 metric tons CO2 per year at the Holcim Portland cement plant in Colorado.

45Q Tax Credit is a great opportunity for cement and iron & steel producers to monetize the CO2 emissions produced during their production processes. But to qualify for this tax credit, the CO2 emissions must be captured, and then that captured CO2 must either be stored underground in secure geologic formations or used for CO2 enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects, or utilized in other projects that permanently sequester/store CO2. 

The sesoned consultants of A&A Consulting Team are available to help cement and iron & steel producers on ALL aspects of their GHG emissions related 45Q Tax Credit projects, to take full advantage of this tax credit opportunity, by providing state-of-the-art consulting services whenever requested.
