EDMONTON – Heidelberg Materials North America has awarded MHI-LSCSC and Kiewit a Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) contract for the carbon capture technology to be used at the company’s Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage (CCUS) plant in Edmonton.

MHI-LCSC is a division of the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) group. The contract will study MHI’s Advanced KM CDR Process, which was developed alongside the Kansai Electric Power Co. This contract is part of a two-stage competitive procurement process to help Heidelberg select the carbon capture technology to power their CCUS facility.

Upon completion, the addition to the Edmonton plant will be the world’s first full-scale net-zero cement operation, adding on to the company’s current facilities. The company estimates that the plant could come to capture and score one million metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. Final investment decisions are set to occur this year.

“Canada is recognized as a frontrunner in deployment of carbon capture and storage enabled by its public policy and partnerships with businesses, which are critical to the success of decarbonization,” said Kosuke Kasada, president of MHI-LCSC.  “We are honoured and excited to be a part of this collaboration.”
