Company Overview

Aker Carbon Capture is a dedicated carbon capture technology (CCUS) company that offers a reliable, field-proven and HSE-friendly way of removing emissions from industrial sources. Our patented solutions serve a range of carbon-emitting industries including cement, blue hydrogen, bio/waste-to-energy, refineries and steel. Through our portfolio of projects across Europe, we are mitigating the environmental cost of industrial activity for a cleaner, more sustainable future.

Our market potential grows daily as a rising number of customers look to CCUS and our company to solve their emissions challenges.

This will be the world’s first CO2-capture facility at a cement plant.
