Compact CO2 Capturing using Amine

The 3C concept (Compact CO2 Capture) has been developed by Equinor and our partners  SINTEF Tel-Tek and CMR Prototech since 2007. The technology captures CO2 using Amine, but with significantly reduced size, cost and energy consumption compared to the traditional capturing columns. This reduction is a result of intensification of the capturing process, and also combining several process steps in a single process unit. The Project is funded by the partners and Climit.

The Desorber has an integrated reboiler and measures 2 x 2 x 4 m

This Industrial Scale Captureplant has the capacity of 100.000 MT of CO2 / year from fluegas containing ca 4% CO2. The absorbtion tower includes DCC and waterwash, and is 5 m / diameter and 8 m high.
