Heidelberg Materials’ Anthemis CCS project in Belgium


Heidelberg Materials intends to equip the recently modernized Antoing plant of its Belgian subsidiary (known as CBR) with an innovative hybrid carbon capture unit. The Anthemis CCS project, established in January 2023, shall reduce the CO2 emission by 97%, equivalent to 0.8 Mta when operational in 2028/29 and will use the innovative second-generation OxyCal concept that combines established Oxyfuel and Amine capture technology in a hybrid unit. The captured CO2 from the Antoing plant is transported by pipeline. Belgium partner Fluxys is responsible for the connection to a large CO2 transportation network from Tournai to Zeebrugge and Ghent for carbon storage in the North Sea.
