TCC, thyssenkrupp Polysius tie-up to develop carbon capture tech

Carbon capture and storage is crucial for reversing climate change and a key strategy in Taiwan's 2050 net-zero roadmap. On 31st January, Taiwan Cement Corporation (TCC) announced to sign the MOU for cooperation on a carbon capture project with thyssenkrupp Polysius (tkPOL). Hoping plant will host the concept, with a Separate Oxyfuel Calciner technology adding pure oxygen to the calcination process, increasing the concentration of carbon dioxide captured to more than 90%, while reducing the energy required. The project, set to complete by 2026, aims to commercialise the technology by 2030, capturing over 100,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually. The carbon dioxide will serve various industries and align with government policies for storage, carbon credits, and value-added uses.

Nelson Chang, Chairman of TCC, said: "Cement has created the civilised society we live in today, and TCC will continue to participate in energy transition and support the development of future civilisations. However, we are also emitting greenhouse gases. Therefore, this cooperation is aimed at solving this problem. Polysius is a golden name in the cement industry, and we are honoured to be able to create the future together with you, not only for the cement industry but also for the world." tkPOL CEO Pablo Hofelich pointed out: " We see you as Taiwan's cement company as one of the most innovative companies in the whole region. You are clearly committed towards a green transition and making this world a better place and avoiding greenhouse emission. So that's why we are privileged to be your partner in there. It's a milestone and strategic project for us as well. And I'm also convinced that with that separate oxyfuel calciner, we can make a big contribution to that, as it is not only a sequestration solution at the end to avoid the emission. It's also a revamp solution where we can work on existing. We are all looking forward to that partnership and to the collaboration.
