The ultimate objective of CLEANKER is advancing the integrated Calcium-looping process for CO2 capture in cement plants

CLEANKER – CLEAN clinKER production by calcium looping process

CLEANKER is a project funded by Horizon2020 addressing CO2 capture from cement production. Given that the calcium looping (CaL) is one of the most promising technologies for CO2 capture in cement plants, the core activity of the project is the design, construction and operation of a CaL demonstration system in the cement plant operated by Buzzi Unicem sited in Vernasca (Piacenza, Italy).
