Heidelberg Materials launches the world’s first carbon captured net-zero cement
Under its new evoZero brand, Heidelberg Materials is introducing the world's first carbon captured net-zero cement to customers in Europe. evoZero achieves its net-zero footprint through the application of carbon capture and storage technology at the Heidelberg Materials plant in Brevik, Norway, without compensation from credits generated outside the company's value chain.
evoZero cement will be available in two versions, depending on the customer location. evoZero Carbon Captured Brevik is directly delivered from the Brevik CCS plant in Norway, achieving its net-zero footprint over the entire life cycle. Customers in other European countries may choose evoZero Carbon Captured, which will be delivered from plants close-by, while leveraging the unique carbon saving attributes realised in Brevik. evoZero Carbon Captured features a net-zero footprint upon delivery.
For both products, the carbon capture attributes are transparent and traceable by harnessing the power of blockchain technology through which Heidelberg Materials' customers will receive a verifiable carbon proof for their evoZero purchase. Leveraging the use of well-established principles such as mass-balancing and book-and-claim, the carbon capture and emission accounting mechanisms have been independently reviewed by a third-party verifier.
