Aker Carbon Capture wins feasibility study for German biomass CHP plant

Aker Carbon Capture has received a contract for a feasibility study to implement carbon capture technology into a biomass combined heat and power (CHP) facility in Germany. The proposed carbon capture capacity is set at 250,000 tons of CO2 per year. Aker Carbon Capture intends to deploy its standardised modular solution, Just Catch, for this project

“We are excited to be working on this decarbonisation project in Germany. There is a clear momentum for carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) in the German market, building on the country’s funding programme for climate protection, which was launched in June”, said Jon Christopher Knudsen, Chief Commercial Officer at Aker Carbon Capture.

The study will assess the optimal CO2 capture, conditioning, liquefaction, and temporary storage facility as well as the heat recovery potential and heat integration solutions. This will reduce the total heating and cooling demands related to capturing and conditioning of the CO2.

This is the second study awarded to Aker Carbon Capture in Germany, Europe’s largest economy and CO2 emitter. The country aims to cut its carbon dioxide emissions by 65% by 2030 compared with 1990 and to become carbon neutral by 2045. CCUS has been identified as playing an important role in the country’s goal to achieve these targets. The German government is expected to publish its Carbon Management Strategy this autumn.

At Twence’s waste-to-energy facility in the Netherlands, Aker Carbon Capture is currently delivering a Just Catch plant with a capacity of 100,000 tonnes CO2 per year.
