Leilac is pleased to announce three decarbonisation projects in partnership with global building materials company, CEMEX. The projects aim to deploy Leilac’s unique technology to capture unavoidable process emissions released in the production of cement. 

Leilac CEO, Daniel Rennie said, “Leilac is delighted to announce three ambitious decarbonisation projects with long-time partner, CEMEX.

“Spanning three countries and two continents, the projects with CEMEX represent the next stage of commercial scale implementation of the Leilac technology as we seek to deliver impactful CO2 abatement across the globe.”

Engineering studies are currently under way for Leilac carbon capture projects based at CEMEX plants in Germany, Poland and the USA.

Leilac is working closely with CEMEX to progress the projects as well as a global licence agreement, currently under negotiation, covering CEMEX’s global operations.

Leilac and CEMEX have a longstanding partnership. CEMEX is a founding and valued member of a consortium of companies and institutions partnering to develop and apply the Leilac technology through the Leilac-1 and Leilac-2 projects.

Mr Rennie continued, “Leilac and CEMEX have a successful history of collaboration and we are grateful for their continued leadership in the transition to a net zero construction industry.

“We look forward to continuing to work with CEMEX towards our shared goal of sustainable cement.”
