MHI, Kiewit to Deliver Carbon Capture Tech for Heidelberg Project

As part of its procurement process for its Edmonton carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) project, Heidelberg Materials has awarded MHI-LCSC, a division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group, and Kiewit Energy Group a front-end engineering design (FEED) contract for carbon capture technology.

The FEED study will leverage MHI’s proprietary Advanced KM CDR Process developed jointly with Kansai Electric Power, which uses the KS-21 solvent.

“We are pleased with this latest step in advancing our Edmonton project and moving even closer to our goal of delivering the first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement sector,” said Joerg Nixdorf, vice president cement operations, Northwest Region for Heidelberg Materials North America. “This latest development represents meaningful progress on the path to achieving a net-zero future.”

The Edmonton plant could eventually capture and store an estimated 1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide each year, which is the equivalent of taking 220,000 cars off the road annually.
