Eni, Holcim Collaborates on Developing CO2 Utilization Technology

Eni has collaborated with Holcim to develop an innovative technology for CO2 utilization for decarbonization purposes, Eni said in a statement.

Eni explained that its technology is developed based on the carbonation of magnesium silicate minerals producing a material in which CO2 is permanently fixed and can be used to formulate cements.

According to the statement, this partnership involves the establishment of a demonstration plant testing the reduction of CO2 footprint of cements and the integration of this innovative solution in cement plants.

In this regard, Monica Spada, Eni’s Head of Research & Technological Innovation, commented: “Innovation and technological development are the strategic key to successfully tackling the challenge of the energy transition, for this we are delighted about this collaboration, which will leverage Eni’s R&D expertise and Holcim’s experience. This technology allows us to accelerate on our path towards decarbonization, by providing a suitable solution for the hard-to-abate sectors”.

Edelio Bermejo, Head of Holcim’s Innovation Center, said “Reaching net zero in cement manufacturing will require the deployment of CCUS technologies at scale. Eni’s solution is very promising, and we are happy to explore its potential as it could take us all one step further on our decarbonization journey.”
