Builds carbon capture plants with knowledge from Langskip and CLIMIT projects
– Our participation in the CLIMIT-supported project “CCS cluster on Øra” and the visit to the pilot plant at Fortum Oslo Varme at Klemetsrud, has been important to mature our ambitions in carbon capture, says CEO of Carbon Centric Fredrik Häger.
Will offer turnkey carbon capture plants for incinerators
Carbon Centric, which is a spin-off of Østfold Energi, will offer turnkey carbon capture plants for incineration plants that are both faster and cheaper than what has been possible so far. The company specializes in carbon capture plants for small and medium-sized combustion lines with emissions of between 10,000 and 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. Now they will raise money to build a carbon capture plant at Østfold Energi's waste incineration plant in Rakkestad.
Sharing knowledge and experiences
Østfold Energi has been involved in the CLIMIT demo-supported projects around the Øra cluster and BorgCO2 from the start. Here is also Fortum Olso Varme (FOV), which is part of the Langskip project to share its expertise and experience. The goal of the Langskip project is to pave the way for new CCS projects, so that the probability of achieving the goals in the Paris Agreement increases. Everyone involved in Langskip is obliged to share knowledge and experience beyond what is usual for an industrial project.
- We have learned a lot from this cluster collaboration, where we have looked at everything from various carbon capture technologies - to how to build a complete value chain within CCS, says Häger.
Collaborating with the supplier of the pilot to Fortum Oslo Varme
It is the Norwegian company KANFA that has developed the design Carbon Centric will now use. By using smaller and standardized dimensions, they believe that modular carbon capture plants can be produced almost as off-the-shelf. According to the press release, this means that incineration plants can cut their greenhouse gas emissions in a faster, cheaper and safer way.
It was KANFA who delivered the pilot to FOV, which was mainly financed by the full-scale project. They have also been central in the cost-reducing measures FOV has taken after the preliminary project «DG3».
The company was also involved in a CLIMIT demo project called Offshore CCS, which looked at the design of offshore CO2 capture facilities. The project was led by the oil company OKEA.
