Carbon Clean Solutions to conduct solvent testing at University of Kentucky advanced carbon capture pilot


Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL) will test its carbon capture solvent at University of Kentucky (UK)’s Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) 0.7MW pilot system installed at Kentucky Utilities’ E.W. Brown Generating Station in Harrodsburg, Kentucky.

This follows the US Department of Energy’s decision to award UK CAER with a research grant worth $940,000, to advance its world-renowned carbon dioxide (CO2) capture research and development. This test will be CCSL’s largest solvent test in the US to date.

CCSL will work with UK CAER’s project team – including LG&E and Kentucky Utilities, and Koch Modular Process Systems, among others –to conduct a pre-feasibility engineering study for an advanced CO2 capture system. If approved by the US Department of Energy, UK CAER and its partners will proceed to design and build a commercial scale 10 MW CO2 capture system integrated with an existing coal-fired power station.

CCSL’s role in the feasibility study will be to provide its patented CO2 separation solvent technology at the UK CAER-designed facility and to help validate the feasibility of large-scale C02 capture. This follows successful testing of CCSL’s technology at the University of Kentucky’s bench scale, 0.1 MW plant in 2016.
