Carbon Capture Linde Presents Carbon Capture Technologies to US Authorities
Linde presents its carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technologies U.S. Energy Association. The presentation will carbon capture technology with a focus on Post Combustion CO2 Capture (PCC)...
Murray Hill/New Jersey – Dr. Krish R. Krishnamurthy, head of clean energy technology (North America) & Carbon Capture Storage (CCS), and Chris Geraghty, director, business development- clean energy (North America), will provide details on Linde’s progress on the $15 million DOE grant project for the advancement of post-combustion carbon dioxide capture technologies at a pilot plant in Wilsonville, Alabama, scheduled to be operational by mid 2014. The facility is testing novel CO2 scrubbing solutions to reduce the energy consumption and costs of advanced carbon capture and separation systems for power plants.
“Advanced CO2 capture for power plants is a critical element in achieving global greenhouse gas emission reduction targets,” Dr. Krishnamurthy said. “The post-combustion capture approach is flexible as it can be applied to existing or new power plants as well as to a portion or the entire flue gas stream. Further, this solvent-based technology can be scaled-up to large capacities in the near term due to the experience gained in related applications, as in natural gas processing.”
