Project LEILAC in Euronews 

Reducing CO2 Emissions

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.


LEILAC (Low Emissions Intensity Lime And Cement) is a European Union Horizon 2020 (H2020) research and innovation project.

Calix’s technology is being piloted with the world’s largest cement and lime companies to mitigate their carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions dramatically without significant energy or capital penalty.
