Shell Cansolv starts CO2 capture testing at Mongstad

Nov 27 2014

Shell Cansolv has begun testing its amine CO2 capture process at Norway’s CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad.

The testing will take place at TCM’s amine test facility, focussing on process verification and emission controls using exhaust gas from the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant at Mongstad. The test phase will reinforce the CANSOLV CO2 Capture technology, and validate its readiness for deployment at industrial-scale projects.

“Shell Cansolv maintains a strong research and development programme, continuously improving both processes and absorbents so we can provide the most advanced CO2 capture solution," said Tim Bertels, Manager for Shell’s Global CCS Portfolio. "This test campaign at TCM will verify our cutting edge technology and assure its effectiveness for future applications. TCM has already proven to be an excellent test platform for different companies and technologies, and we are excited to utilize TCM for advancing Shell Cansolv’s newest technology as well.”

“TCM has been playing a vital role in the development of CCS technologies since 2012, helping companies like Aker and Alstom, to test and reduce the costs and the risk of scale-up carbon capture," added Erik Harding Hansen, Managing Director CO2 Technology Centre Mongstad. "Shell is a key participant in a number of CCS projects around the world and we’re pleased to be playing our part in the technology’s development.”
