C-Capture receive accreditation from BP

Apr 06 2020

C-Capture's CO2 capture technology has been awarded accreditation under the BP 2020 Advancing Low Carbon accreditation programme.

C-Capture have a unique, solvent-based technology which can be deployed on most industrial processes requiring CO2 separation from other gases, including power stations, industrial plants, hydrogen production facilities, and bio- or natural gas upgrading plants.

The technology uses a new class of capture solvents that are not classified as hazardous, are inexpensive, and can be manufactured on a large scale from biological sources. C-Capture’s technology uses 40% less energy consumption than current commercially available technologies and has the potential to significantly reduce the cost per tonne of CO2 capture.

Martin Sellers, BP Ventures, Ventures Principal and director of C-Capture said, “Through their innovative carbon capture technology, C-Capture could significantly reduce CO2 emissions from numerous industrial sources. They are a great example of the type of solutions-driven companies we invest in to support our ambition of becoming a net-zero company by 2050 or sooner and to help the world to get to net zero. We are pleased to have been able to accredit C-Capture this year as a BP “partner” in BP’s Advancing Low Carbon programme.”

BP’s Advancing Low Carbon programme encourages every part of BP to pursue lower carbon opportunities and includes investments in low carbon technologies. BP invested in C-Capture in 2018; this accreditation is a recognition of the potential of C-Capture’s technology in removing carbon dioxide from power generation and industrial processes. Accredited activities must meet the programme’s criteria and requirements and be independently assured by Deloitte LLP before they can receive the Advancing Low Carbon recognition mark.
