French Cement plant signs deal to install modular carbon capture tech

Carbon8 Systems’ technology will be used at Vicat’s Montalieu cement plant to combine industrial waste residues with captured carbon dioxide emissions to produce high-value, lightweight construction aggregates

Carbon8 Systems has signed a commercial agreement with the Vicat Group cement company to deploy its award-winning technology at Vicat’s Montalieu cement plant, near Lyon in France, next month.
