Decarbonizing Construction Begins in Luxembourg
The worldWorld’s emerging issue is climate change provoking devasted floods, extreme temperatures, and weather patterns.
In a European country, Luxembourg, Green House Gas emissions significantly contribute to climate change; on the top is carbon dioxide, followed by methane. The primary sources of GHG emissions are food and agricultural waste.
A climate business, Levidian, located in Cambridge, is extending its operations and services across Europe by bringing cutting-edge decarbonization technology to Luxembourg to target methane emissions.
This technology compromises so-called LOOP devices with no additives and low-temperature and low-pressure techniques aiming to convert methane into its component atoms: hydrogen and carbon, transforming into graphene, the thinnest and strongest substance ever discovered.
The construction firm Stugalux of Luxembourg will employ this LOOP technology to convert generated biomethane gas from food and agricultural waste into hydrogen for power production and graphene for utilization in construction products.
The three LOOP systems will treat over 250,000 cubic meters of biomethane gas together, producing more than 30 tons of graphene and averting 572 tons of CO2e per year.
In 2022 Levidian launched its first LOOP10 system in southern Scotland in partnership with Eco Group, planning to install over 60 LOOP1000 units within the next five years.
The Stugalux company will first set up a LOOP20 device on-site to remove around 20 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) annually. By 2025, the company plans to set up another LOOP100 system to accelerate decarbonization.
