Air Products’ Green Technology Wins Rushlight Carbon Capture Award
“We are very proud to have received this award on behalf of the project team. It is a true recognition that technology can play an important part in making carbon capture and storage a real option for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and is an important and practical approach to the issue of CO2 purification. It also rewards technology that demonstrates novel advancement and shows evidence of progress in energy efficiency,” said
Air Products is currently working on a number of carbon capture and storage demonstration projects across the world. Air Products’ oxyfuel technology can reduce the cost of capturing CO2 for the power industry. The company has specifically focused on the purification of the resulting oxyfuel combustion flue gas, developing a robust process for the efficient removal of trace impurities. Air Products’ proprietary sour compression technology uses a staged compression process to optimize pressure, hold-up and residence time, allowing removal of impurities during the compression process. This technology can allow cost savings in the oxyfuel combustion process and minimizes the content of these components in the sequestered CO2.
Air Products’ oxyfuel sour compression technology has been demonstrated in experimental work carried out by Imperial College London with actual flue gas from a 160kW coal-fired rig at Doosan Babcock in
