Capturing CO2: How to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the cement industry

Project LEILAC appeared in a TV documentary on latest European research to reduce CO2 emissions in cement manufacturing.

The report was a co-production between EuroNews and the European Commission, and was part of a programme called Futuris, on European science, research and innovation.

Researchers believe the technology behind a pilot reactor, that´s already able to absorb 5% of a cement factory's total carbon dioxide emissions, could contribute to reaching a target of 80% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions in Europe by 2050.
