Heidelberg Materials Awards Edmonton FEED Contract

Heidelberg Materials North America named Technip Energies as the recipient of a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the carbon capture technology for its Edmonton carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) project.

The project will be the first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement sector.

Powered by the Shell CANSOLV CO2 capture system, the Technip Energies solution, which will be the basis of the FEED study, offers cutting-edge performance based on regenerable amine technology.

“We are excited to take this latest step in our journey to produce the world’s first net-zero cement,” said Joerg Nixdorf, vice president cement operations, Northwest Region for Heidelberg Materials North America. “With each milestone we come closer to realizing our vision of leading the decarbonization of the cement industry.”

Heidelberg Materials North America will be commissioning the world’s first net-zero cement plant at its Edmonton location by adding CCUS technology to an already state-of-the-art facility. The plant will eventually capture and store an estimated 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. 

Subject to finalization of federal and provincial funding agreements, the company anticipates carbon capture to begin in late 2026.
