Following a new EPC order from Cimpor, booked at the end of last year, FLSmidth will deliver a chlorine bypass solution, eliminating chlorine build-up in the flue gas as Cimpor plan to increase their alternative fuel rate to above 60%. Work on the chlorine bypass is expected to start in Q3 2021 with production returning to normal in early 2022.

The benefits enabled by the chlorine bypass, such as reduced CO2 emissions and higher substitution rates, make this solution a flagship for FLSmidth’s MissionZero programme in Cement. MissionZero is our sustainability ambition to enable customers to run cement production at zero emissions in 2030.
