Carbon8 technology approved by DNV, meets ISO 14064-2 standard

Carbon8, a UK-based carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) specialist, has had its methodology approved by DNV, meeting the requirements of the ISO 14064-2 standard.

The company’s patented technology permanently captures carbon dioxide (CO2) at the source of hard-to-abate industries. It also diverts landfill-bound ashes and residues and turns them into material that can be used for construction products.

Jamie Burrows Head of DNV’s Energy Systems business area’s CCUS unit, said, “Some utilisation techniques, such as that developed by Carbon8 can capture and store CO2 with a high level of permanence.”

“In addition to producing materials that can be used in established value chains, couples with biogenic sources of CO2, such techniques can generate CO2 removals.”

Burrows predicts that these technologies will become increasingly important in the coming years and says that they will be particularly beneficial in locations where CCS might not be an option due to a lack of supportive policy or infrastructure.

Carbon8 selected DNV, a European energy expert and assurance provider, to validate and authenticate its methodology to demonstrate authenticity and traceability.

ISO 14064-2 requirements specifically relate to quantifying, monitoring, and reporting activities, techniques, and processes that can reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions.

Maarten van Roon, Carbon8’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “Our main ambition for this methodology is to provide confidence in our technology to customers across industries.”

“The telemetry in our operations provides a dataset that delivers transparency around quantity and provenance, underpinned by the recognition of DNV.”

DNV concluded that Carbon8’s methodology:

  • Provides accurate reporting, eliminating the risk of double counting or inclusion of unsupported removals
  • Measures emissions reduction/removal accurately, accounting for equipment manufacture, operation, and disposal emissions
  • Established stringent, transparent, and repeatable monitoring procedures.

Back in May, Carbon8 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mannok Cement to look at how Carbon8’s CCUS technology can contribute to Mannok’s emission reductions roadmap.

At the time of the announcement, Carbon8 said it was in full swing on the feasibility of deploying its technology in 2025, including the integration carbon-negative materials into Mannok’s downstream product division.

North American CO2 Summit 2024

Join gasworld in September 2024 as our North American CO2 Summit heads to Nashville. More information including our theme and agenda will be released over the coming weeks – you can register your interest to ensure you stay updated.

Our North American CO2 Summit 2023 agenda was focused on how to source, move and use CO2 more effectively and sold out, so we recommend securing your space.
