Abstract: Heidelberg Materials has operated a cement plant in NW Edmonton since 1955, all along evolving as a leader in the industry through innovative advances in technology and improvements in sustainability actions.  Today, the Edmonton plant’s only virgin raw materials are limestone and sand, iron, clay and ash are all waste products of other industries.  The Edmonton plant has been generating GHG credits for the past 5 years, and now with the introduction of the alternative fuel system as well as the implementation of the carbon capture plant, Heidelberg has net-zero (and even negative) production in sight for a hard-to-abate materials; cement.  The presentation will present the current status of the carbon capture project as well as provide an understanding of Heidelberg’s Carbon Roadmap towards net-zero cement and concrete.
