carbon capture and storage

Carbonor and Aker Carbon Capture have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly develop Carbonor’s planned low CO2 char production in Øygarden in western Norway. The project will utilize Aker Carbon Capture’s ‘Just Catch 100’ technology integrated with Carbonor’s pyrolysis technology to produce low-emission, high-carbon reductants for the alloy industry.

Chevron Australia has admitted that its major carbon capture and storage project in West Australia, the Gorgon facility has failed to meet its 5 year target. The oil giant had described the Gorgon facility as the world’s biggest CCS project, with the target of injecting almost 5 million tonnes of carbon emissions generated by an LNG facility beneath the Barrow Island for permanent storage. However, it is possible that Chevron has managed to meet only 30% of that target. Chevron operates the facility on behalf of other partners including Shell and ExxonMobil.

Japan’s National Maritime Research Institute (NMRI) successfully demonstrated the feasibility of capturing carbon for permanent storage aboard a shipping vessel during live operations. Scientists had been able to show the potential of directly removing carbon generated by a ship’s exhaust system. But these tests were based on simulations generated in NMRI’s laboratory. NMRI worked with Alfa Laval, a Swedish industrial manufacturer to construct a scrubber (a kind of shipping vessel) which was specially designed to include a CCS facility onboard.
