Air Products helps demonstrate oxyfuel CO2 capture and sequestration


Air Products has announced it will play a key role in the world’s first full demonstration of oxyfuel carbon capture and sequestration, with the signing of an agreement with Vattenfall AB, one of Europe’s leading energy companies.

Air Products will install a proprietary carbon dioxide (CO2) capture, purification and compression system, at Vattenfall’s research and development facility in Schwarze Pumpe, Germany, which is viewed globally as the preeminent CO2 oxyfuel project.

The company will focus specifically on the purification and compression of oxyfuel combustion flue gas, taking flue gas directly off Vattenfall’s 30 megawatt (MW) wall-fired boiler at the oxyfuel pilot plant.

It will purify and compress the carbon dioxide, a portion of which will ultimately be transported for sequestration.
