The KOdeCO net zero project aims to make Holcim’s Koromačno plant the first to produce net-zero cement in Croatia and the Mediterranean. It will establish a first-of-its-kind, end-to-end carbon capture and storage value chain between the plant and storage under the Mediterranean.
Adopting a highly scalable low-risk solution, the project uses renewable electricity which enables 20% electricity savings, higher efficiency, circularity of condensate and reduced water consumption.
With a vision for the Koromačno plant to be net-zero by 2028, the project aims to capture and store around 366,000 tons of CO2 per year. The project’s decarbonization efforts led to it being selected for an EU Innovation Fund grant in 2023 as well as the Just Transition Fund.
