With the intention of increasing awareness and understanding of the carbon capture process and reduce technological risks associated with full scale implementation of generic plant capture, Carbon Clean Solutions Ltd (CCSL) has launched its new test campaign at Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM).
CCSL is a world leader in the design, development & deployment of carbon capture technology and TCM is the world’s largest and most advanced facility for testing and improving CO2 capture.
CCSL will demonstrate its technology at TCM in order to generate long-term testing data at full-scale carbon capture.
The test will continue until March 2016. It is part of CCSL’s plans to further develop its patented APBS chemical solvent, which can remove up to 50% more CO2 with the same energy requirement, compared to existing carbon capture offerings, subsequently reducing the size of equipment and energy demand.
Aniruddha Sharma, CEO at CCSL, commented: “Our drop-in solvent technology has the potential to dramatically reduce high corrosion, high energy demand and solvent loss. Having demonstrated the technology at pilot scale at the National Carbon Capture Centre, USA, we believe that this new demonstration with TCM can bring the technology to commercial readiness benefiting generations to come.”
Ray Vardheim, Managing Director at TCM, stated: “TCM has played a vital role in the development of CCS technologies since 2012, and we are delighted to have successfully started the test campaign with Carbon Clean Solutions. We look forward to work closely with them in the weeks and months ahead to test and verify their promising solvent.”
Tests to date have shown CCSL’s technology to have significantly improved energy efficiency, reduced solvent loss and degradation, and helped in lowering the costs associated with carbon capture.
