The CLEANKER project on Superquark: Wednesday 26 August on RAI1

As a demonstration of the strategic value of the research, the CLEANKER project, coordinated by LEAP and held at the Buzzi Unicem Vernasca plant, will be the protagonist of an in-depth study that will be broadcast as part of the Superquark program, the historical program of science, nature, history and technology conducted by Piero Angela on Rai1, in the Wednesday evening 26 August at 9:25 pm. 
The program that will be broadcast on Rai1 will show the main points of the project, objectives and potential, thanks to the interviews given by the protagonists of the research work and to the images shot at the Vernasca cement plant, which will show the final stages of implementation of the pilot plant.

The CLEANKER (Clean clinker production by calcium looping process) project focuses on
CO2 capture in the cement production process. This is an ambitious and fascinating scientific initiative which, if expectations are confirmed, could represent an important innovation for the cement sector towards an even greater environmental sustainability of the production process.
