ExxonMobil and FuelCell Energy to develop CCS pilot with carbonate fuel cell technology


ExxonMobil’s affiliate Esso Nederland BV has unveiled plans to build a pilot plant at its Rotterdam manufacturing complex that will combine carbonate fuel cell technology (CFC) carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology jointly developed with FuelCell Energy.

With the plans unveiled today (18th Dec), the pilot hopes to address potential technical issues that may occur in a commercial environment and better understand the costs of installing and operating a CFC plant for carbon capture.

Once captured, the CO2 will be transported and stored via the Porthos project for permanent storage under the North Sea.
