World’s largest CO2 mineralization plant to start in the USA

Fortera Redding ReCarb Plant detail

In the USA, in 3 weeks, start-up Fortera Corporation will open the world’s first commercial-scale CO2 mineralization plant at CalPortand’s Redding cement plant. The ReCarb® plant is inspired by nature and converts CO2 back into mineral form, to make carbon capture and utilization (CCU) realistic. Limestone as a feed material is dissolved in water and carbonated in an absorber with captured CO2 from the cement plant. After filtration and drying, the reactive calcium carbonate ReCarb® can be stored in silos for shipment. Such a process can be integrated in existing cement plant infrastructures and mineralize up to 70% of the CO2 process emissions.
