CCUS in the Indian cement industry – A review of hubs and storage facilities (June 2024)

Cement production is responsible for 7-8% of current global CO2 emissions, and approximately 5.8% of CO2 emissions in India (2022), the world’s second largest cement producer.

The Global CCS Institute, the Global Cement and Concrete Association, and the Clean Energy Ministerial CCUS Initiative have partnered to accelerate CCUS deployment across the cement sector in India. This project is supported by GCCA India CEOs some of whom provided detailed
data for 7 plants as potential future lighthouse projects.

The present paper summarises the findings of outcome 1 of the partnership which includes a review of onshore and offshore geological storage resources in India, where captured CO2 from cement facilities could potentially be transported and permanently stored.
