Leilac Expert Insight Series : 

Jorge Pablo Garcia, CEMEX, on the next steps and challenges

Jorge Pablo Garcia, CEMEX, talks about the next steps and challenges for the Carbon Capture and Storage.


LEILAC (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement) will pilot a breakthrough technology that has the potential to enable both Europe’s cement and lime industries to reduce their emissions dramatically while retaining, or even increasing international competitiveness.

The best available technologies for cement and lime have no carbon capture capability.  The international and EU community recognises that CO2 emissions contribute to climate change, and the most practical approach to reducing such emissions to-date for the cement and lime industries has been to increase kiln efficiencies and utilise alternative fuels. 

In this fifth video of the Leilac Expert Insight, Jorge Pablo Garcia shares talks about next steps and challenges for the Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Technology being piloted by Project LEILAC. He describes Project LEILAC as a way to look at the calcination process in a different way and a way to prepare a sustainable basis for future operations.


Founded in 1906, CEMEX has a long experience in cement fabrication and is today one of the world’s largest traders of cement and clinker. CEMEX is a recognized sustainability leader in the cement sector. The company has the leading position, among other Cement main producers, in burning alternative fuels.
