MHI Group expands CCUS solutions with launch of CO2 liquefaction facility


Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group has commenced joint demonstration testing of a system that liquefies the carbon dioxide (CO2) captured from gas engine generator sets as part of its initiative to expand carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) development.

To be explored alongside MHI Engine & Turbocharger (MHIET) and MHI Air-Conditioning & Refrigeration Corporation (MHI-AC&R), the testing programme will see CO2 capturing from gas engine generator sets at MHIET’s Sagamihara Plant in Japan.

The CO2 will be captured by MHI Group’s ‘CO2MPACT’ capture system before undergoing liquefaction in MHI—AC&R’s CO2 liquefaction system. With its reduced volume and enhanced portability compared to gaseous CO2, liquefied CO2 is poised to drive CCUS uptake.
