CO2 capture pilot plant to prove ‘next-gen’ tech at Japan power station


A new carbon dioxide (CO2) capture pilot plant is to be installed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd (MHI) at Himeji No.2 power plant in Hyoho, Japan as part of a project which aims to demonstrate MHI’s ‘next-generation’ CO2 capture technology.

The announcement comes after the Japanese engineering giant signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with The Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc. (KEPCO) to install the plant as a substitution of the existing pilot plant installed at Nanko Power Station in 1991.

The plant will capture approximately five tonnes of CO2 per day from flue gas produced by the gas turbine at the Himeji No.2 Power Station. By demonstrating the CO2 capture technology – jointly developed with ExxonMobil – the plant aims to accelerate R&D aimed at reducing environmental impact and costs.
