Lafarge Canada Gets Closer to Canada’s Most Carbon Efficient Cement Plant


Following the implementation of Project CO2MENT, Lafarge Canada has moved to the second stage of carbon capture at the Richmond Cement Plant. LafargeHolcim Head of North America, Rene Thibault, visited the facility as Phase II of the project begins. Flue gas from the plants manufacturing facility is now captured through Svantes equipment “ reducing the amount of gases released into the atmosphere.

This remarkable change is part of Lafarges drive to make Richmond the most carbon efficient cement plant in Canada. Along with carbon capture, the plant uses a $28-million system to use non-recyclable waste as fuel, directing it away from BC landfills.

Project CO‚‚MENT provides an opportunity to evaluate the potential for a new business model for supplying industrial post-combustion CO‚‚ to the existing CO‚‚ market as well as assessing the economic feasibility of newly developed CO‚‚ utilization technologies. ˜Svante offers the cement industry a commercially viable way to capture large-scale CO2 emissions from existing infrastructure at half the capital cost of traditional solutions, said Claude Letourneau, President and CEO of Svante. We are poised to help our customers transition to a net-neutral carbon future by making industrial-scale carbon capture a reality today.

The system purifies the cement flue gas by trapping its contaminants to enable an efficient and durable CO2 capture process. Now that Phase II is underway, Phase III – a demonstration of CO2 utilization solutions such as reinjecting it into low-carbon fuels, CO‚‚ concrete, and fly ash “ will begin in 2020.

About Svante

Svante offers companies in emissions-intensive industries a commercially viable way to capture large-scale CO2 emissions from existing infrastructure, either for safe storage or to be recycled for further industrial use in a closed loop. Svantes technology is currently being deployed in the field at pilot plant-scale by industry leaders in the energy and cement manufacturing sectors. The CO2MENT Project “ a partnership between LafargeHolcim and TOTAL S.A. “ is building a 1 TPD plant in Richmond, BC that will re-inject captured CO2 into concrete as a storage solution, while the construction of a 30 TPD demonstration plant was completed this summer at Husky Energys Pikes Peak South thermal project in Saskatchewan, Canada.
