Heidelberg Materials North America Announces Latest Step in Edmonton CCUS Project

Heidelberg Materials North America announced today a significant milestone in its two-stage competitive procurement process as it works to select the capture technology and contractor for providing the CO2 separation solution for its Edmonton, Alberta, Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) Project. This ground-breaking project will be the first full-scale application of CCUS in the cement sector.


As part of this process, Technip Energies, a world-leading engineering and technology player for the energy transition, has been selected as one of the partners for this effort and has been awarded a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the carbon capture technology for the Edmonton CCUS project. 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.


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, which is the equivalent of taking 300,000 cars off the road annually. Subject to finalization of federal and provincial funding agreements, the company anticipates carbon capture to begin in late 2026.
