HeidelbergCement Plans Polish Cement Plant CCS Project (Int'l.)
HeidelbergCement
Date: 2021-09-17
Germany-based HeidelbergCement reports it has partnered with Norway-based Sintef Energi to install a pilot carbon capture and storage (CCS) system at its cement plant in Gorazdze, Poland. The project will deploy new enzyme-based CCS technology which allows greater use of the waste heat and simplifies the control of secondary emissions, according to the release.

The project has received €15 million in funding from the EU Horizon 2020 Industrial Emissions Reduction Programme. Eighteen industry partners and research organizations will collaborate towards the deployment of the project which is slated for completion in April 2025 at an expected cost of €18 million.

Wartsila Joins Maritime Carbon Capture Consortium (Int'l.)
Wartsila
Date: 2021-09-10
Helsinki-headquartered Wartsila reports it will take a central role in developing maritime carbon capture & storage (CCS) technologies as one of the leading partners in the LINCCS (linking carbon capture and storage) consortium.

Wartsila Exhaust Treatment is the market leading modular marine exhaust gas cleaning system manufacturer, with a range of lifecycle scrubbing solutions. The treatment offers integrated compliant solutions for all types of ships, and in open loop, closed loop or hybrid configurations.

To support CCS technology development, Wartsila Exhaust Treatment will expand its engineering facility in Moss, Norway to develop, test and verify the CCS solutions. This will bring the technology to a maturity level where it can be piloted in full scale on a vessel.

The LINCCS project is focused on reducing costs for new carbon storage facilities by 70 pct and advancing the development of carbon capture technologies in a range of sectors. This week, it was announced that the LINCCS consortium would receive 111m Norwegian kroner in funding over the next three years from the Norwegian government's Green Platform Initiative.

Wartsila will lead this workstream with support from the Sustainable Energy Catapult Center and SINTEF Energy to contribute to wider, cross-industry CCS developments from project partners including Aker Solutions, Cognite, Aize, AGR, OpenGoSim, Wintershall Dea, Var Energi, Lundin, Equinor and TotalEnergies.

Aker Carbon Capture, SINTEF Continue CCS Collaboration (Int'l.)
Aker Carbon Capture, SINTEF
Date: 2021-05-07
Oslo-headquartered Aker Carbon Capture and SINTEF, one of Europe's largest independent research organisations, are reporting a new MoU to continue and advance their collaboration on bilateral R&D projects ranging from membrane technology, hydrogen applications and testing higher capture rates. The two parties will also work in hydrogen and other new market segments.

The parties were the main participants in SOLVit, an eight-year research and development program that started back in 2008. The NOK 317 million ($38.2 million) program was partially funded by Gassnova and Akerand was one of the biggest of its kind in the CCS industry.

DNV GL Collaborating on CCS Tech. Commercialization (Int'l.)
DNV GL,Technology Centre Mongstad
Date: 2020-10-09
in Oslo, Norwegian risk and verification consultancy DNV GL has forged a collaboration with the Sintef research institute and Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) to accelerate development, upscaling and commercialization of technologies for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects worldwide.

CCUS is expected to contribute to a reduction of more than 2 gigatonnes of CO2 emissions by mid-century but scaling of such technology is seen as critical to achieving national and international targets for emissions cuts in line with the Paris Climate Agreement's goals.

However, scaling of technology for carbon capture is currently not expected to start before 2030 and will not achieve a significant level until 2040 without government incentives and cost-reduction initiatives by the energy industry, according to DNV GL.

The three collaborating parties provided input to Norway's proposed Longship CCUS project that will entail a full-scale chain for carbon capture, backed by state funding of up to $1.8 billion. The project incorporates innovative elements including capture of CO2 emissions from the cement industry, transport of CO2 by ship, and temporary storage of CO2 prior to pipeline transportation and storage, according to DNV GL.

Aker Solutions Mobile CCS Test Facility Underway in Sweden (Int'l.)
Aker Solutions
Date: 2020-05-29
Norwegian engineering firm Aker Solutions reports its mobile carbon capture and storage (CCS) test facility at oil major Preem's hydrogen gas plant refinery in Lysekil, Sweden, has begun test operations. Full-scale operations are slated for later this year when the project reduces the Lysekil refinery emissions by 500,000 metric tpy -- one-third of the refinery's total annual CO2 emission -- according to the company.

The project, a collaboration between Sweden's largest fuel company Preem, Aker Solutions, Chalmers University of Technology, Equinor, and the Norwegian research institute SINTEF, is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and the Norwegian research and development programme CLIMIT.

Norwegian Fish Farm Waste-to-Biofuel Plant Underway (Int'l.)
Biokraft,SINTEF
Date: 2020-01-15
Trondheim, Norway-headquartered Biokraft AS is reporting construction is underway on a pilot salmon farm waste biofuel plant near the town of Skogn in Central Norway.

The $39.1 million project is in collaboration with the Norwegian research and innovation organization SINTEF and is also thought to involve a German partner with considerable experience in producing aviation-jet biofuels.
