Holcim Obourg will replace wet kilns with new dry line

Holcim GO4ZERO

Holcim has a groundbreaking CCS-project in the Obourg cement plant in Belgium. The GO4ZERO-project is implemented in 2 phases. First, the 2 wet kilns will be replaced by a new dry process line with a clinker capacity of 1.7 Mta, close to the capacity of the old kilns. Sinoma International Engineering won a 218 €m contract to build the plant by 2026. The second phase is with partners such as Air Liquide to capture, purify and transport CO2 via the Port of Antwerp for the injection in depleted wells in the North Sea. GO4ZERO shall be operational before 2030.
