CEMCAP (http://www.sintef.no/cemcap/) is an EU Horizon 2020 project that aims at maturing CO2 capture technologies suitable for retrofitting to existing cement plants by undertaking pilot-scale demonstration under industrially relevant conditions. Four capture technologies are being tested, analyzed and compared on a consistent basis: Oxyfuel capture, Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP), membrane-assisted CO2 liquefaction and Calcium looping. Beyond CEMCAP, having more options than the already mature amine technology available for retrofittable CO2 capture from cement plants, the technology options for CCS deployment will be expanded. However, it must be recognized that technology development alone will not contribute to the realization of CCS in the European cement industry or any industrial sector. Investment decisions in the EU will require a long term predictability of the policy for prevention of carbon leakage (re-location of production and emissions).
