Industrial gases and engineering company, Linde has announced it has signed an agreement with building materials company, Heidelberg Materials to jointly build, own and operate a large-scale carbon capture and liquefaction facility.

Through the use of carbon capture, Linde and Heidelberg Materials will aim to reduce carbon emissions at Heidelberg’s Lengfurt plant in Germany. The new plant will capture, liquefy and purify around 70,000 tons (63500 tonnes) of CO₂ per year, with the majority of the resulting liquid CO₂ to be marketed by Linde as feedstock for the chemicals and food & beverage end markets.

Sean Durbin, executive vice president EMEA at Linde says: ‘For many of Linde’s customers in the heavy industrial sector, improving the environmental performance of their operations is a priority. Our innovative project with Heidelberg Materials is one of the first large-scale plants of its kind for the cement industry. Considering current market constraints, it is also a welcome new source of CO₂ that will help ensure supply for the merchant market.’
