Carbon Capture & Utilisation in Review 2019

October 16, 2019

The seminar was held with international experts from Carbon Capture and Utilisation. Every aspect from preparation to product finishing was covered by the most prominent representatives of this young but promising industry which was requested to implement regulatory requirements on one hand, but also offers improvements in altering business modells and economics of waste incinerators on the other hand. A special focus was laid upon CO2 to methanol as economical promising and industrial available technology.

The following five main sections were pursued:

1. General Introduction with Legal and Technological Overview

2. Best Practice CO2 Capture from the flue gas 
    • Mobile Test Unit since 2009, including Klemetsrud WtE in Oslo, Norway 
    • Twence Waste-to-Energy Plant in Hengelo, Netherlands

3. Best Practice CO2 Utilization 
    • Business Case and market development for Waste Incinerators 
    • Flexible CO2 to methanol synthesis • Pre-Basic Engineering ZASt plant, Germany

4. Hydrogen Supply for CCU 
    • Best Practice 
    • State of the Art Alkaline Electrolysis on pressure level of methanol synthesis

5. Development CCUS project at Waste Incinerators in Fredrikstad, Norway
