The UK-based carbon capture technology provider Carbon Clean Solutions or Carbon Clean has added three new projects to its portfolio. The company is expanding its customer base and adding new agreements that utilize its fully scalable carbon capture technology system.
The company announced on April 21st that Taiheiyo Cement will use its CO2 chemical absorption technology for its CO2 capture demonstration project at Kumagaya cement plant in Kumagaya City, Saitama. Carbon Clean’s technology will be fitted to capture CO2 from the rotary kilns used for cement production.
The project’s demonstration tests will start in September 2021 and it will have the capacity to capture 10 tons of CO2 a day. Taiheiyo Cement aims to adopt a technology that will help towards reaching its net zero target by 2050.
Carbon Clean has also signed a memorandum of understanding with BayoTech for CCS facility from hydrogen production. The carbon capture and storage plant will be installed at BayoTech’s hydrogen plant in North America.
“We are excited about this breakthrough partnership with BayoTech that is going to enable the growth of the green hydrogen economy. We look forward to this relationship growing to realize our shared objective of delivering affordable and modular H2/CO2 solutions to drive the transition to a greener future,” said Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of Carbon Clean.
Another agreement that Carbon Clean Solutions has added is with Liquid Wind. The deal is for the development of a carbon capture plant on a green methanol production facility. The e-methanol facility will be located in Örnsköldsvik in Sweden and should become operational in 2024. It will have a capacity to convert 70,000 tons per year of captured CO2 into 50,000 t/y of e-methanol.
Carbon Clean Solutions Technology
Carbon Clean’s carbon capture technology uses a semi-modular system with a proprietary solvent. It is currently testing its next-generation full modularisation technology that is supposed to reduce the size of the equipment to one-tenth.
That would mean a 50% reduction in capex and opex compared to open-plant designs. The company is currently involved in 38 projects around the world involving equipment supply and CCS construction. It is one of the carbon capture companies to provide a scalable solution for industrial decarbonization.
