Technip Energies, Shell test the latest Cansolv CO2 capture technology improvements
Technip Energies and Shell Catalysts & Technologies unveiled that their jointly developed improvements on the Cansolv CO2 Capture technology are being tested in a pilot plant campaign at Fortum Oslo Varme’s waste-to-energy plant.
In response to the increased global interest in CCS, the technologists and engineers of Shell Catalysts & Technologies and Technip Energies are working closely to bring continuous improvements to the Cansolv CO2 capture system’s process design, efficiency and costs. These efforts are to ensure improved affordability and aid wide scale deployment of carbon capture solutions by their clients.
The three-month test campaign has been kicked off in August 2021 and will entail different test phases that will support the extension of the related improvements. This is the second test campaign conducted by this collaboration. In the first campaign, the low volatility and amine emissions of the DC-103 solvent used in the process was demonstrated as well as its low absorption energy and solvent degradation.
Technip Energies and Shell Catalysts & Technologies are engaged in an alliance for the development and application of Shell’s high efficiency and commercially proven Cansolv CO2 capture system.
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
