Cementa and HeidelbergCement one step closer to establish a climate-positive cement plant in Sweden

HeidelbergCement, of which Cementa is a subsidiary, is now stepping up its activities with one of Sweden's largest climate transition initiatives. Today, the results of the pre-feasibility study for a CCS plant in Slite will be presented, as well as how the new grant from the Swedish Energy Agency will drive the coming steps towards a climate-positive cement production in Sweden in 2030.

When completed in 2030, the plant will capture and store up to 1.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually, equivalent to 3% of the country's total emissions. As one of Sweden's largest green industrial transformation projects, the project on Gotland will be key to the Swedish construction sector's ability to achieve its climate transition.
