Norcem

WP5

Norcem AS is the sole producer of cement in Norway and is an experienced international supplier of the product. Norcem, part of the international HeidelbergCement group, is one of three Norwegian point sources which have been identified by the Norwegian Government as being of interest for a full-scale CO2 capture project. Located at a short distance from one of the other three sources (Yara) and also possibly within a reasonable distance from the third source (Klemetsrud waste incinerator in Oslo), Norcem is particularly interested in the Grenland Cluster within the ALIGN-CCUS project.

Norcem and HeidelbergCement Northern Europe, in cooperation with the European Cement Research Academy, has been running a project (supported by Gassnova through the CLIMIT-programme) to test different carbon capture technologies.
