Abstract

Abstract: Given the scale of carbon emissions in heavy clay manufacturing, the decarbonization of a ceramic production process cannot be limited to a fuel switch towards low- or non-carbon sources of process energy, but must include the removal of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused by eventual decarbonization of raw materials. A different approach to raw materials is required as well. Carbon capture and storage (CCS), direct air capture (DAC), or carbon capture and usage (CCU) processes might become unavoidable even if these might have been deemed by industry to have limited viability due to the size and GHG dilution of a typical heavy clay installation. GHG management must become an essential part of the corporate strategies even for small or medium sized businesses.
