In news in brief, the European Cement Research Academy has selected two locations – HeidelbergCement’s Colleferro plant in Italy and LafargeHolcim’s Retznei plant in Austria – to host oxyfuel carbon capture pilot projects. The aim of the research is to test oxyfuel technology and processes at industrial scale in cement plants. The group has €25 million (US$31.2 million) in funding from cement companies, but is looking for additional national or European funding.
