Carbon8 Systems to supply AVR with carbon capture technology


Carbon8 Systems, a UK-based company that combines industrial waste residues with captured CO₂ emissions, will be running its first Energy from Waste (EfW) pilot project in The Netherlands.

Dutch waste-to-energy company AVR will house the EfW plant at Duiven, 120km east of Rotterdam. Carbon8’s patented carbon capture and utilisation solution is known as the CO₂ntainer will be deployed at the plant.

The CO₂ntainer will demonstrate how fly ash produced by an EfW plant can be combined with captured CO2 from a plant’s flue gas emissions to create manufactured aggregate for compliant use in the construction industry. 

Annually, the Duiven plant processes waste from 1.5million households, releasing around 400,000 tonnes of CO₂. Last year, AVR revealed its work with Air Liquide to use c15% of the CO₂ captured from its Duiven plant, mainly for regional horticultural purposes.
