The Columbus project in the spotlight

Last week, our R&D director Jean-Yves Tilquin participated in a debate in “Les Acteurs de l’Eco” on LN24, where the Columbus project was discussed.

This project, a participation between Carmeuse, John Cockerill and Engie, will be a game changer in the defossilisation of the Walloon industry and beyond. The project will concentrate CO₂ from an innovative type of lime kiln of Carmeuse, and combine it with green hydrogen to produce synthetic methane, a renewable gas that can be injected into the gas grid or used in the transport or industry sectors. 

This underpins Carmeuse’s ambitions to be part of the solution for the defossilise the industry and to be carbon neutral by 2050.
