The combination of OxyCalciner & Cryocap™ Oxy is a novel technology that will enable low capture variable cost. Through this project, Holcim will transform the Milaki cement plant into a net carbon removal site.
It uses OxyCalciner technology to capture CO₂ from the flue gas of the Milaki cement plant. The captured CO₂ will then be transported to the Cryocap plant to be liquefied and stored.
The Cryocap™ Oxy technology by Air Liquide captures and purifies CO₂ from flue gas through oxycombustion processes. It has a CO₂ capture rate of 98%. This technology can manage impurities, particularly high levels of nitrogen oxides, to ensure the quality and safety of the captured CO₂.
