Chart receives $5m funding by DOE for carbon capture tech


US-based industrial gas equipment manufacturer Chart Industries has been awarded $4,999,875 by the US Department of Energy (DOE) for its Sustainable Energy Solutions Cryogenic Carbon Capture (CCC) technology.

The funding will be used to scale up the CCC system by allowing the design, building, commissioning and operating of an engineering-scale CCC process at Central Plains Cement Company LLC’s cement plant located in Sugar Creek, Missouri.

Scaling-up will also involve the increase in capacity of carbon dioxide (CO2) captured to 30 tonnes per day.

The award, which was one of the four largest funding amounts of the 12 eligible projects (with a total funding amount of $45m), will also assist Chart in its aim to demonstrate >95% capture rate of CO2 from the flue gas slip stream, resulting in a >95% pure CO2 stream.
