Holcim US received unanimous approval to become a member of the Carbon Capture Coalition, making it the first and only cement and concrete producer to join the nonpartisan collaboration.
“Being at the forefront of developing low carbon solutions requires continuous innovative thinking and partnerships,” said Toufic Tabbara, region head North America, Holcim. “Our efforts are most effective when we can align and join forces with other companies and organizations across industries who share this same commitment. We are proud to be part of an organization that is similarly focused toward more efficient, innovative and sustainable practices.”
Convened by the Great Plains Institute, the Carbon Capture Coalition is comprised of more than 90 companies, unions and environmental policy organizations, building federal policy support for carbon capture technology deployment.
Holcim has made significant investments in the development of low carbon solutions and has been actively developing carbon capture feasibility studies. With significant support and grants from the United States Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory (DOE-NETL), Holcim is assessing the viability and design of a commercial-scale carbon capture facility.
The two studies are in collaboration with research institutions and corporate partners and are being conducted at the Holcim Florence (Colo.) and Holcim Ste. Genevieve (Mo.) cement plants.
“Holcim’s leadership and commitment to net-zero emissions will be a tremendous asset to the coalition,” said Jessie Stolark, public policy and member relations manager for the Carbon Capture Coalition. “We look forward to working with Holcim as we continue to highlight the central role that carbon management technologies will play in meeting mid-century climate goals, decarbonizing domestic manufacturing and industry, and retaining and expanding a high-wage jobs base.”
