The main goal of the project is the development and scale-up of an absorption-based COy capture technology using aqueous KOH solution coupled with an electrochemical cell employed for the regeneration of the spent alkaline solution. The high purity CO2 stream released can then be utilised for the production of formic acid. This technology is mainly aimed on reducing the CO2 footprint of energy-intensive industries.

Reference Number


RCCS contributes in various areas such as in the modelling of the CO2 capture process, in the design of the demonstration pilot-scale CCU plant which has currently been deployed in Denmark and will subsequently be relocated to Romania and Greece, as well as in the development of techno-economic studies while also making contributions to the CCUS network modelling and LCA parts of the project.
Specifically, over the previous year, the team has worked on developing a validated model for the CO2 capture technology based on lab-scale data and providing input for the soon-to-start demonstration cycles by identifying sets of optimal operation parameters. Furthermore, over the previous months, work on the development of detailed techno-economic studies has commenced aimed on providing an insight on the feasibility and evaluate the potential for large-scale deployment of ConsenCUS CCUS technologies.
