Design, building and testing of integrated 3C pilot for experimental verification of the concept
The project was a continuance of two former Climit-project with the aim of validating a concept of Rotating Packed Bed (RPB) Absorber, and a Rotating Desorber Wheel (RDW) stripper. This project had an aim of building a Pilot absorber and do a closed loop test including the RPB and the RDW previously built. The planned tests were performed successfully, and the Compact Carbon Capture (3C) technology has reached a Technology Readyness Level 4.
The project was performed by Fjell Technology Group AS (FTG) in close collaboration with Equinor, TelTek and Prototech AS. The pilot RPB was designed, constructed and assebled in the lead of FTG, and was tested at Equinors Test Facilities PLAB at Herøya in Porsgrunn. The test was performed on MEA/Non-proprietory solvent, on simulated fluegas.
