C-Capture has been awarded funding of over £1 million to help develop their amine free post-combustion carbon capture solvent technology for use in power generation.
The funding is from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy under their Energy Entrepreneurs program, and the CO2 Capture Project (funded by BP, Chevron and Petrobras). The project, working with industrial collaborators, and with world-leading experts in CCS from Sintef in Norway, aims to facilitate scale up of C-Capture technology, focussing on key aspects of relevance for large scale deployment. In particular, it aims to verify the exceptional low energy requirements for CO2 capture, other environmentally beneficial aspects, and to provide an overall understanding of the main benefits compared to other current solvent based approaches for CO2 capture.
