Technology to Achieve 'Net Zero'

About us

The company

Carbon Clean was founded in 2009 as the growth rate of atmospheric carbon was starting to soar. Within a decade, the Earth's CO2 levels reached their highest point in 3 million years.

Headquartered in London, Carbon Clean has offices in India, Spain and the United States. As of June 2022, we have removed over 1.5 million metric tonnes of carbon from 49 facilities across the globe. Our work is founded on the belief that achieving net zero isn’t a pipe dream, it’s an imperative. But it will take far more than a focus on renewables.

Key industries can and should play a significant role in global carbon reduction. We provide all the services needed to achieve net zero, including technology licence and solvent supply, a full process design package (PDP) and proprietary equipment, and end-to-end systems — including design, build, financing and operation.

CO2 capture

CO2 industrial capture & utilisation (CCU)

We know that the best technology aligns with operational realities. Using our cost-effective, scalable carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) technologies, industries can capture over 90% of their CO2 .

Our process works within existing industrial operations for minimal disruption and maximum cost-effectiveness. It enables industries to not only reach net zero, but leverage decarbonisation incentives and join the growing global circular carbon economy market. As we close the gap between industries and net zero, we're helping solve both climate and business challenges.

Who we serve

Our next-generation CCUS applications are designed specifically for hard-to-abate industries, including steel, cement, refinery, energy from waste and bio gas.

cement

Cement

With more than 4 billion tonnes of cement produced globally each year, the cement industry generates approximately 8% of all global CO2 emissions. But the process is one of the easiest to facilitate carbon capture.

refineries

Refineries

While processing by refineries only contributes around 5 to 10% of the total emissions resulting from oil products, the opportunities for reducing these are significant due to the nature of the processes used. Major players in the industry are already pledging to achieve net zero by 2050.

steel

Steel

The highly complex process of steel-making provides multiple opportunities for carbon capture, including using CCUS on the blast furnace to capture and store the majority of carbon emissions.

Energy from Waste

By utilising CCUS at EfW plants, municipal authorities can decarbonise the entire waste chain, and achieve a huge reduction in the carbon footprint of individuals in cities.

biogas

Biogas

Carbon dioxide (CO2) and other impurities must be removed from renewable natural gas (RNG) feeds – like biomethane and landfill gas — to meet purity specifications. Our proprietary solvent is a simple drop-in enhancement for current solvents, delivering better performance for CO2 removal.

Success stories

Purpose-built: Technology for industry

In 2016, Tuticorin Alkali Chemical and Fertilizers Ltd. partnered with Carbon Clean to create the world’s first fully commercial carbon capture, storage and utilisation plant. Located near Chennai, it has been achieving over 90% carbon capture rates since it began operation.

90%+

Carbon Capture Rate

Proprietary: High-performance solvents

Since 2018, Carbon Clean in collaboration with Arcanum Energy has surpassed 500,000 m3 of biogas processed per day with its APBS-CARBex® solvent in their biogas upgrading facilities in Germany. Compared to the standard amine, Carbon Clean’s technology provides several advantages that allows the plants to operate more efficiently. 

25%

Less Thermal Energy

Breakthrough: Technology for low-cost carbon capture

In 2017, Carbon Clean announced breakthrough test results from the Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) pilot. Corrosion testing confirmed that with APBS-CDRMax®, it is possible to construct and operate with a less expensive, lower grade of stainless steel.
