creating our own future
C5LAB activities are based on:
Develop innovative technologies for CO2 capture as a prerequisite for safe geological storage of CO2 (CCS) or, preferably, their use in value added products (CCU) (chemicals, synthetic fuels or building materials). Evaluate, from a technical and economic point of view, these two innovative technologies, enhancing their development and their industrial application in the medium / long term.
Optimizing energy consumption (thermal and electrical) and developing innovative technologies to dramatically reduce the environmental impact of cement production.
Investigate the combination of process waste heat recovery technology for power generation with photovoltaic and / or concentrated solar energy technologies
Develop, characterize and optimize, together with the national cement industry, eco-efficient cements and concretes, of equal or better performance than the materials currently based on Portland cement.
