C-Capture’s innovative carbon capture technology was showcased as part of an international seminar in Stockholm, last month.
Organised by the British Embassy in Stockholm and Klimpo – a Stockholm-based climate change non-governmental organisation – the seminar focused on the leading developments within the bioenergy with carbon capture and storage sectors (BECCS) in the UK and Sweden.
An opportunity to enhance collaborations between the two countries to help reach global climate change targets, the event highlighted the strength of the UK’s carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology and the increased potential for BECCS deployment in Sweden.
C-Capture were selected to feature as a supplier operating at the forefront of the UK’s CCS technology sector. Phil Southerden, C-Capture’s Chief Technology Commercialisation Officer, presented an overview of the company’s unique, next generation carbon capture technology at the event, including details of C-Capture’s collaboration with Bioenergy Infrastructure Group (BIG) on the pioneering InBECCS project. Based at the largest waste wood gasification plant in the UK, InBECCS aims to be the first negative emissions project in North West England.
“To rise to the global challenge of meeting climate change targets we need multiple projects and solutions to come to fruition in a very short space of time. This event was a great opportunity to capitalise on the appetite in Sweden to deliver carbon capture solutions; to collaborate to achieve climate change targets together; and to explain how C-Capture’s technology can support in achieving these goals. Our technology has the potential to overcome the stumbling blocks that are currently preventing the widespread adoption of carbon capture. As a very robust technology that is lower-cost, C-Capture’s solution is an ideal fit for capturing CO2 from industrial emissions.”
Phil also took part in a podcast by Klimpo discussing UK CCS technology. Listen below.
