Carbon Clean Solutions signs contract to test its solvent technology at Technology Centre Mongstad, world’s largest and most advanced CO2 capture test facility

LONDON, UK – 25 Sep, 2015 – Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL), which was recently included in the World Economic Forum’s list of the 49 most promising global Technology Pioneers of 2015, has signed contract with Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM). TCM is the world’s largest and most advanced carbon capture facility for testing and improving carbon capture. CCSL also announced that its test campaign at TCM could start as early as November this year. CCSL’s chemical solvents can remove up to 50% more CO2 with the same energy requirement, thereby reducing the size of equipment and energy demand. Tests to date have shown CCSL’s technology to have significantly improved energy efficiency and reduced solvent loss and degradation than its competitors, minimizing overall operating costs. The company is now demonstrating its technology at TCM to generate long-term testing data at full-scale carbon capture.

Roy Vardheim, Managing Director of TCM, says: “TCM has been playing a vital role in the development of CCS technologies since 2012, helping companies like Aker, Alstom and Shell Cansolv to test and reduce the costs and risks of scaling-up carbon capture. These new test campaigns represent a new milestone in the commercialisation of this vital climate technology.”

Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of CCSL, says: “Use of ineffective amines across the industry is the root cause of high corrosion, high energy demand and solvent loss, and our drop-in solvent technology has the potential to dramatically reduce this. Having demonstrated the technology at pilot scale at the National Carbon Capture Centre, USA, we believe that this demonstration with TCM can bring the technology to commercial readiness.”

About Technology Centre Mongstad:

Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) is the world’s largest and most advanced facility for testing and improving CO2 capture.  TCM is a joint venture set up by the Norwegian state (75.12%), Statoil (20%), Shell (2.44%) and Sasol (2.44%).  It aims to increase knowledge on carbon capture technologies, in order to reduce technical and financial risk, and accelerate the development of qualified technologies capable of wide scale international deployment. 

The centre comprises two CO2 capture plants each with a capacity to capture approximately 80,000 tons of CO2 from the nearby refinery or 20,000 tons from a gas fired power plant.  In addition the center has available space and infrastructure to sustain the next generation technologies to be tested in the future.
