Why CCS?

Power plants and industrial facilities accounts for more than 78% of global CO2 emissions.


(World Resources Institute, 2017)

CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage) is the process of capturing and permanently storing carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities, hence preventing the carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere.

BECCS (Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage) is the process of capturing and storing carbon dioxid emissions from facilities using bioenergy as fuel, hence creating negative emissions by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

 

Investment in CCS is crucial to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants and industrial facilities, and hence mitigate the associated environmental and economic impact of climate change.

The captured carbon dioxide can be utilized as a component in other industrial processes or for enhanced oil recovery, or it can be transported and safely stored in geological reservoirs.

According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) more than 2,000 CCS facilities will be needed by 2050, creating millions of new jobs during the construction and operation phase.

Why Capsol EoP is the preferred solution:

Capsol EoP is the most cost-efficient carbon capture solution due to its low energy consumption (most of the energy used for flue gas compression is recovered).

Capsol EoP uses Hot Potassium Carbonate (HPC), which is an inexpensive absorber compared to atmospheric systems based on Amines or Amino acids. In addition, HPC has no pollution risk to air or water.

Capsol EoP has short delivery time (installation and commissioning in 24-30 months).

Capsol EoP requires no downtime of the power plant or industrial facility during installation.

CCS is essential for reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
