The EVEREST project is an initiative aimed at improving the calcination process and implementing carbon capture technology in the largest lime plant in Europe, located in Germany. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and is being carried out by a consortium of companies and research institutions.

The objective of the EVEREST project is to reduce CO2 emissions in the lime production process by improving the calcination process and implementing carbon capture technology. In addition, the project will implement carbon capture technology to capture and store the CO2 emissions generated during the calcination process.

The new calcination process being developed in the EVEREST project uses an innovative rotary kiln design that allows for better heat exchange and more efficient use of energy. The process also involves the use of alternative fuels such as biomass and waste materials to replace fossil fuels. The carbon capture technology being implemented in the project uses a post-combustion capture process that captures the CO2 emissions generated during the calcination process.

The EVEREST project is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by up to 70% compared to conventional lime production processes. The project will also contribute to the achievement of Germany's climate goals by reducing CO2 emissions in the industrial sector. In addition, the project will create new job opportunities and stimulate economic growth in the region.
