Carbon Clean Solutions starts testing at TCM

Nov 24 2015


Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL) has started to test its solvent technology at Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM), and aims to commercialize a technology with the potential to halve the energy demand.

CCSL, which was recently included in the World Economic Forum’s list of the most promising global Technology Pioneers of 2015, is now demonstrating its technology at TCM to generate long-term testing data at full scale carbon capture. 

The test is part of CCSL’s plans to further develop its patented APBS chemical solvent, which has the potential of removing up to 50% more CO2 with the same energy requirement, thereby reducing the size of equipment and energy demand. The test campaign will continue until March 2016.

"Our drop-in solvent technology has the potential to dramatically reduce high corrosion, high energy demand and solvent loss. Having demonstrated the technology at pilot scale at the National Carbon Capture Centre, USA, we believe that this new demonstration with TCM can bring the technology to commercial readiness benefiting generations to come," said Aniruddha Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at CCSL.
