Danish business, Haldor Topsoe, has signed an agreement with Icelandic geothermal power company, HS Orka hf, to deliver a plant to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from geothermal heat sources.
The plant will be the first to use Topsoe’s new selective oxidation catalyst, SMCTM, to remove sulphur from the offgas from Orka’s geothermal power plant and produce commercial grade CO2.
The SMC catalyst will be at the centre of the new demonstration plant which will be located next to Orka’s existing geothermal power plant in Svartsengi, Iceland. This plant will process 10% of the total off-gas stream to produce commercial grade CO2.
It is our aim and responsibility to fully utilise the environmental and commercial possibilities from the geothermal sources we manage
Orka will pay Topsoe per tonne of CO2 that meets specific purity requirements, whilst Topsoe will design, engineer and deliver all the equipment and services for the plant, including remote monitoring and catalyst replacement.
