Shell to launch five-month test for carbon capture technology in Norway


Shell Catalysts & Technologies (Shell) will test its carbon capture technology at Technology Centre Monstad (TCM) in Norway after entering an agreement set to last five months.

Due to start in January 2023, the test will see Shell testing its proprietary amine-based solvent that is part of the CANSOLV CO2 Capture system – one of the company’s two carbon capture technologies.

CANSOLV CO2 is Shell’s solution for gas treating and CO2 recovery. According to Shell, the technology uses a regenerable amine that possesses low parasitic energy consumption, fast kinetics, low volatility and resilience to degradation in oxygen containing gas streams.

Having previously carried out two test campaigns at TCM in 2014-15 and 2016, one of Shell’s technologies has been chosen for Hafslund Oslo Celsio’s full-scale capture plant at Klemetsrud, Oslo in Norway.
