Aker Carbon Capture welcomes the Norwegian government's recommendation to realize CO2 capture and storage at Norcem HeidelbergCement’s plant in Brevik, Norway.

Aker Carbon Capture has signed a framework agreement with Norcem HeidelbergCement for the EPC delivery of a CO2 capture plant in Brevik, Telemark in southern Norway. This will be the first carbon capture project at a cement factory anywhere in the world. The captured CO2 at the plant equals the total emissions from about 200,000 cars from the roads.

“This is a big day for everyone who works to reduce emissions from industry,” says Valborg Lundegaard, CEO of Aker Carbon Capture. “We welcome today's decision to start full-scale CO2 capture and storage in Norway, and we look forward to working with Norcem HeidelbergCement, Norwegian authorities and all other stakeholders to realize this groundbreaking project, and to deploy Aker Carbon Capture’s patented technology.”

The estimated value of the contract for Aker Carbon Capture is about NOK 1.7 billion. The project is expected to commence in January 2021. The carbon capture plant is scheduled to start operations in 2024.
