When building or retrofitting a power station plan for the future.
"Fit for Carbon Capture" certification ensures your power plant is on track for improved climate protection and sustainability!
In carbon capture & storage (CCS) technologies, expected to become commercially available by 2020,
CO2 – a by-product whenever electricity is produced from fossil energy carriers (coal, gas) – is no longer emitted into the air but separated in the power-station process and transported to a storage location. Key factors of success in this context involve minimising the inevitable efficiency losses, which vary according to the selected separation process, and jointly developing suitable engineering solutions.
"Fit for Carbon Capture" in 4 steps:
- Collation of relevant data in accordance with the guideline, which provides the framework for decision-making
- Evaluation of the data for CCS retrofitting
- Discussion of results plus identification and implementation of optimisation measures
- Issue of the certificate
