Carbon Clean plans launch of low-cost carbon capture technology for industry in 2023

Carbon Clean says that in two years it will bring to market a carbon dioxide capture process for industry that it says is a tenth the size of conventional processes and can be deployed in two months at half the capex and opex of alternatives. It says can capture carbon at around $30/tonne.
The technology, which combines a proprietary amine-promoted buffer salt solvent and rotating packed beds, is being demonstrated In the UK at a pilot plant at Doosan Babcock’s Emission Reduction Test Facility (ERTF) in Renfrew, Scotland. The project involves Newcastle University, the University of Sheffield, and has support from the UK government.
Carobn Clean says the technology has been proven at scale in ten power, cement, refineries, CHP and heavy industry boilers in the UK, USA, Germany, India, Norway, and the Netherlands is being commercialised for final product roll out by summer 2022 and market roll out in 2023.
The UK government has supported the development of Carbon Clean’s technology through competitive grants. UK Energy & Climate Change Minister, Greg Hands said: “Backed by £5 million of government funding, Carbon Clean’s innovative new technology will help make the widespread industrial adoption of carbon capture a reality, supporting UK industries to decarbonise while attracting new investment as we work towards ending our contribution to climate change by 2050.”
