Linde wins US funding for carbon capture project


The US Department of Energy (DoE) has selected technology conglomerate, The Linde Group, to benefit from $15m for the advancement of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture technologies.

Linde’s pilot plant is to be built in Wilsonville, Alabama and is expected to be in operation by early 2014. The facility will test CO2 scrubbing solutions to reduce the energy consumption and costs of advanced carbon capture and separation systems for coal-fired power plants.

Dr Andreas Opfermann, Head of Linde’s Clean Energy emission reduction targets explained the importance of the scheme, “Advanced CO2 capture for power plants is a critical element in achieving global greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. As a leader in this field, we are extremely proud that the DoE recognises our R&D efforts in this area, as especially in North America we see a growing need for efficient ‘clean coal’ solutions.$quot;

Opfermann added, $quot;The DoE award will therefore help strengthen Linde’s position in this future-oriented sector in the US.”
