Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL), a leader in low-cost carbon dioxide (CO2) separation technology, has been awarded two key Engineering Concept Study contracts by Yara, the Norwegian fertilizer company, and Klemetsrud Energy Agency (KEA), Norway’s largest energy recovery facility.
CCSL was awarded these key contracts in partnership with Apply Sørco, a leading international engineering company. CCSL will act as technology provider alongside Apply Sørco, who will be responsible for completing the full engineering study. This exclusive partnership will combine CCSL’s game changing carbon capture technology with Apply Sørco’s engineering expertise.
Feasibility studies undertaken in 2016 demonstrated that carbon capture is technically possible at three key sites in Norway – Norcem's cement factory in Brevik, Yara's ammonia factory on Herøya, and the energy recovery plant at Klemetsrud. These concept studies will determine whether the Norwegian government will make new investment into these facilities in the future, scheduled for 2019.
Aniruddha Sharma, Chief Executive Officer at CCSL, said: “Norway is a world leader in carbon capture storage, so being a part of these large-scale, government-funded studies is a huge win for us. We are confident that our technological know-how, combined with Sørco’s engineering capabilities, will enable us to achieve great results and show the possibilities now achievable in carbon capture.”
The concept studies are a key part of the Norwegian Government’s goal to establish a complete carbon capture and storage (CCS) chain, including capture, transport and permanent storage, by 2022. The concept phase will also be used to establish an accurate cost estimate.
