BEIS awards MPA £6m for hydrogen and plasma technology

Mineral Products Association (MPA) has been boosted by £6m of UK Government funding for groundbreaking demonstrations of hydrogen and plasma technology.

The trade association’s project, awarded funding by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), will demonstrate the potential of these technologies to reduce carbon emissions through fuel switching from fossil fuels in cement and lime production.

The cement trials will take place at sites operated by Tarmac and Hanson Cement. The cement production trial comprises two demonstrations, one of electrical plasma energy and biomass fuel and the other of hydrogen and biomass energy.
