About

Leilac is the collaborative technology partner seeking to enable a sustainable future for cement and lime in a carbon neutral world. By developing the lowest cost carbon abatement solution, we will equip producers to take urgent action against climate change and protect their industries’ jobs and prosperity.

Operating across Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, Leilac has imagined the future for sustainable cement and lime. And we’re creating it. Today.

Technology

Lime decarbonisation plant

Leilac’s unique technology seeks to enable the affordable abatement of unavoidable CO₂ process emissions in cement and lime production.

With no additional chemicals or processes, our indirectly heated calcination approach aims to efficiently separate CO₂ for use or storage.

Leilac’s modular design is being developed to be retrofitted and scaled to capture 100% of the process emissions from any plant.

Leilac’s technology is designed to operate on a variety of energy sources, including electricity and alternative fuels, to provide viable, flexible and economical pathways to carbon free cement and lime.

Global CO₂ emissions

CO2 impact

Cement and lime provide the foundations of our societies and economies. They are also amongst the largest contributors to climate change, accounting for approximately 8% of global CO₂ emissions. Unlike other industries, most of the CO₂ produced in the manufacture of cement and lime is unavoidable.

To preserve our planet, cement and lime producers must urgently decarbonise. To preserve our way of life, we must do so at the lowest possible cost.

Careers

We’re scientists, engineers, project managers and innovators. We’re team players and collaborators.

And we’re each applying our unique skills and Leilac’s breakthrough technology to create sustainable industries and a sustainable planet.
