The chief commercial officer of Aker Carbon Capture – Jon Christopher Knudsen, explained that the strategic partnerships with the two companies will help with the optimization of the value chain to accelerate the deployment of carbon capture utilization and storage.
As the partnership is non-exclusive, the parties can also offer full value chain services at locations where the combined technical concept of Aker Carbon Capture’s technology and the processing and shipping capabilities of Altera Infrastructure and Höegh LNG is best suited.
“These collaborations represent key building blocks in our Carbon Capture as a Service; Carbon Capture Made EasyTM offering, enabling source-to-storage decarbonization at a pay per tonne captured CO2 model,” said Mr. Knudsen.
The partnership between the three companies – major players in the carbon capture and storage industry, is maximizing the value for emitters willing to curb their carbon footprint. Reaching the ambition of clean energy and a net zero economy involves the participation of the most promising and efficient clean energy technologies out there and carbon capture and storage is one such solution.
