Its objective is to create a cross sectorial value chain and to operate a full-scale plant that uses CO2 as a resource by 2030. This plant will eventually capture almost 100% of the annually emitted 700,000 tonnes of CO2 at Lafarge’s cement plant in Mannersdorf, Austria. The aim is to ultimately use the captured CO2 In combination with green hydrogen (from renewable energies) produced by Verbund. OMV will then transform the CO2 to hydrocarbons using renewable energy, which in turn, can be used to produce renewable based fuels or be utilised by Borealis as a feedstock to manufacture value-add plastics.
