LEILAC (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement) is a European Union Horizon 2020 (H2020) research and innovation project.
LEILAC will pilot a breakthrough carbon capture technology that would enable both Europe’s cement and lime industries to reduce their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions dramatically without significant energy or capital penalty.
Running for five years from 2016 to 2020, the project team comprises leading industrial, technology and research & development partners. The pilot plant will be hosted by Heidelberg Cement at Lixhe (Lieze) in Wallonne, Belgium.
This €21m project has received €12m of funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 654465. The balance of the funds will be provided by the consortium partners.
