Caloric has signed its second contract for the supply of a carbon dioxide recovery unit using aMDEA®-solvent within the last 12 months, based on its licence granted by BASF SE.

Ordered by a Swedish company, the plant is part of a syngas treatment facility to be located in the Northern Part of Sweden.

The contract further strengthens Caloric’s position in supplying customised gas generation and treatment plants for the industry.

Key design issues will be Caloric’s expertise in the modularised construction of such plants, resulting in the shortest possible delivery and start up time, as well as high plant flexibility to cover multi operational modes.

The gas sweetening plant is designed to remove sulphur components down to traces of parts per million, while also simultaneously adjusting specific carbon dioxide concentrations in the treated gas, as a requirement of downstream units.

Designed to treat a syngas flow of 1150 Nm³/h, the plant is set to draw on feed stock from a gasification unit converting biomass.

The gasification and gas treatment process takes place at pressure levels up to 28 bar (g), while the facility is scheduled to be delivered in May 2010.
