At the end of March, 2019 the industrial tests of CARBONCAPT unit, an innovative plant, designated for Carbon Capture and Liquefaction projects at cement plants, biogas plants, incenerators and similar had been finished. The pilot plant was designed and manufactured by Landsborg Group LLC, based on the latest achievements of Post Combustion Capture technology. It features low operation and maintenance costs, low energy consumption and very fast ROI.

Within the recent 40 years the Carbon Capture and Utilization - CCU or Storage - CCS technologies have been actively implemented, modified and improved. Different concepts, i.e. Pre Combustion Capture, Post Combustion Capture, Oxi Fuel, PSA adsorption and others have been and still are verified in different parts of the globe. The economic benchmarking has shown, that Post Combustion Amine Absorption Carbon Capture (PCAACC) process will be primary and the most commercially preferable option for the upcoming years.

The amine chemical absorption process implies the drip irrigation of flue gases coming upwards from the bottom of absorbing column by the liquid absorbing solvent, which comes downwards, thus the saturation of absorbing solvent with the CO2 is taking place. This part of the process features low temperature and relatively high pressure. The next stage is as follows: the temperature of saturated absorbing solvent goes up and the pressure goes down in the desorbing column, thus the freeing of chemically captured CO2 is taking place, now it could be cooled and dried and drawn to liquefaction station for further compression. 

Exactly this concept was chosen by Landsborg Group engineers for process design, engineering and manufacturing of CARBONCAPT pilot plant.

The tests of CARBONCAPT pilot plant had been held within the period of July, 2018 - March, 2019, within 3000 operational hours, when more than 600 tn of carbon dioxide was captured and compressed, and a wide range of innovative Flexol-Carbostrip  absorbing solvents was tested.

 As a source of flue gases  CarbOilex pyrolysis reactor, fuelled by wood shavings, was used. The chemical composition and CO2 volumetric content in flue gases proved to be suitable for the tests, that is why we designed, produced and tested the CarbonCapt pilot plant for feasibility and operationability check, with further fine tuning and scaling up of full-scale commercial units deployment to the global hard-to-abate industries.

At present we are ready to customize the CarbonCapt technology for interested customer and offer the full scale industrial CARBONCAPT plant with a huge capacity of up to 1250Ktn CO2 capture per annum.
