HeidelbergCement and Joule announce partnership

HeidelbergCement and Joule announce partnership to explore carbon-neutral fuel application in cement manufacturing

HeidelbergCement and Joule, the pioneer of liquid fuels from recycled CO₂, today announced a partnership designed to explore application of Joule’s technology to mitigate carbon emissions in cement manufacturing. The partnership with Joule represents another example of its sustained dedication to leveraging innovative technologies and programs for climate protection.

As part of the agreement, emissions (or offtake gas) from various HeidelbergCement factories could provide Joule with the waste CO₂ required to feed its advanced Helioculture platform that effectively recycles CO₂ back into fuel. A successful partnership between Joule and HeidelbergCement could over time result in the co-location of Joule’s Helioculture Technology at one or more HeidelbergCement sites around the world.

"We've been focused on lowering carbon emissions for more than two decades, and we are excited to take further steps to lower our CO₂ emissions by working with a dedicated organization with state-of-the-art technology that is committed to protecting the climate," said Jan Theulen, Director Alternative Resources, HeidelbergCement. "Joule's process, which effectively recycles waste CO₂ into liquid fuels, is a perfect match for HeidelbergCement and our core values, and we look forward to starting the journey towards a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship."
