Aker Carbon Capture has been awarded a feasibility study by TES, to explore the implementation of a carbon capture plant at a waste-to-energy facility in Germany.
The planned capture capacity will be 400,000 tonnes CO2 per year. The captured CO2 will be transported by railcar to the TES facilities at Wilhelmshaven in Northern Germany to produce e-NG, which is electric natural gas derived from green hydrogen and CO2.
Jon Christopher Knudsen, CCO at Aker Carbon Capture says: ‘We are excited to be working with TES on this innovative decarbonisation project…We aim to deliver our modular Just Catch 400 unit, which has gained high market interest since its recent launch.’
‘This evaluation of an industrial scale project will allow us to select the best of different available capture technologies based on real-life performance going forward in massive scale up,’ adds Jens Schmidt, CTO at TES.
This is the third study awarded to Aker Carbon Capture in Germany, Europe’s largest economy and CO2 emitter.
