Canadian lithium company Standard Lithium has installed a new carbon capture pilot plant in southern Arkansas to assess the feasibility of capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) directly from natural gas burning flue-gas streams.
The plant, which was designed and constructed in the UK by Standard Lithium’s partner, Aqualun, will be integrated with ongoing work to understand how captured carbon can be utilised in its lithium brine processing flowsheet, and potentially in permanent geological sequestration.
After initial commissioning and testing with a CO2-rich flue-gas stream, the plant was then shipped to the Gulf Coast and installed at the final testing location, a natural gas processing site in southern Arkansas that is owned and operated by Mission Creek Resources.
Dr. Andy Robinson, President and Chief Operating Officer of Standard Lithium, said that Standard Lithium is committed to ushering in a new generation of sustainable mineral extraction by exploring new technologies designed to minimise carbon emissions.
