GCCSI Webinar: Cutting Cost of CO2 Capture in Process Industry (CO2stCap) – 17 November 2017

The CO2StCap project is a four year initiative carried out by industry and academic partners with the aim of reducing capture costs from CO2 intensive industries (more information available here). The project, led by Tel-Tek, is based on the idea that cost reduction is possible by capturing only a share of the CO2 emissions from a given facility, instead of striving for maximized capture rates. This can be done in multiple ways, for instance by capturing only from the largest CO2 sources at individual multi-stack sites utilising cheap waste heat or adapting the capture volumes to seasonal changes in operations.
The main focus of this research is to perform techno-economic analyses for multiple partial CO2capture concepts in order to identify economic optimums between cost and volumes captured. In total for four different case studies are developed for cement, iron & steel, pulp & paper and ferroalloys industries.
This webinar will give an overview of the project with insights into the cost estimation method used. We will also present a iron & steel industry case study based on the Lulea site in Sweden, for which waste-heat mapping methodology has been used to assess the potential for partial capture via MEA-absorption. Capture costs for different CO2 sources are compared and discussed, demonstrating the viability of partial capture in an integrated steelworks.
