CO2 Capsol expands liquefaction and WtE solutions

Norwegian carbon capture technology provider CO2 Capsol is to supply a liquefaction unit to a ‘major’ Germany energy company after signing a rental and service contract.

Expected for delivery in Q3 of this year, the unit can be used in conjunction with the CapsolGo carbon capture demonstration unit and will form part of the existing 12-month contact for delivery of two CapsolGo demonstration campaigns to the client.

One capture unit will begin operations at a Waste-to-Energy (Wte) facility while another will be located at a biomass-fired Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant.

According to the company, CapsolGo enables large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2)-emitters to test and verify the effectiveness of CO2 Capsol’s Hot Potassium Carbonate (HPC) technology.

Used in thousands of plants globally in multiple industries, HPC is a non-toxic and inexpensive solvent used to capture flue gas.

Commenting on the new development, Cato Christiansen, Chief Technology Officer of CO2 Capsol, said, “The construction of a CapsolGo liquefaction unit is in line with the overall company technology strategy which focuses, among other, on the development and integration of CO2 liquefaction concepts.”

“This will enable emitters to receive optimised proposals, minimising the electricity consumption of the overall system.”

He went on, adding that the unit ensures flexibility and efficiency to achieve CO2 output quality required in the carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) value chain for safe transportation, usage and long-term storage.”

The company has also recently gained traction in carbon capture from WtE after it was selected by KVA Linth to conduct a feasibility study for the CapsolEoPTM (end-of-pipe) carbon capture technology at a plant in Switzerland.

CO2 Capsol states that the plant has a carbon capture potential of more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year, of which half of the CO2 comes from biogenic sources.
