High-level overview of the CapsolEoP®carbon capture solution for Waste plants
Some of the advantages of CapsolEoP® for carbon capture from Waste plants
90%+ capture rate
CO2 concentration and impurities in the flue gas from biomass plants are well suited for our Capsol EoP carbon capture solution, with a capture rate of more than 90%.
Safe and Inexpensive solvent
The CapsolEoP® carbon capture unit utilises the non-toxic and inexpensive solvent Potassium Carbonate, a common mixture in the food industry which is readily available.
Cost competitive due to patented energy recuperation which keeps most of the energy within the system. Electrical energy consumption of ~0.7-1.5 GJ/tonnes of CO₂ captured, depending on the composition and temperature of the flue gas (not including liquefaction). No additional heat energy required.
Additional heat for DH system
Thermal power export from the heat recuperation to the district heating (DH) network maximises the efficiency of the process. CapsolEoP® can be optimised for maximum heat delivery to the DH system. Example: For every 1MWe extra of electricity, get 8X additional heat output over 60oC to your district heating system.
Powered by Electricity or Steam
CapsolEoP® can run on electricity only, or electricity and steam, if excess steam is available. The unit is independent of parent plant and easily scalable.
High CO2 purity
The captured CO2 has high purity and no harmful emissions. It is safe and environmentally friendly. The captured CO2 is totally free of degraded (potentially carcinogenic) amines.
Capsol's technology demonstrated on a Energy-from-Waste combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Sweden
230 000 tonnes CO2 per year
From September 2022, a CapsolGo® demonstration campaign was running at Öresundskraft's Energy-from Waste plant Filbornaverket in Helsingborg, Sweden, for 6 months. The independent test operator Captimise AB has performed tests and analysis and provided Öresundskraft with independent test reports. The project has been funded with 25 percent by the Swedish Energy Agency.
