SINTEF to work with C-Capture on carbon capture research

05 September 2019, Published under Cement News

C-Capture and SINTEF are set to team up in a new effort to find solutions to carbon capture. C-Capture wants to further develop its technology which uses new proprietary solvents to remove carbon dioxide from industrial processes, such as cement manufacture. C-Capture will use the Tiller lab at SINTEF’s institute in Trondheim, Norway, over the next six months to make the removal of carbon dioxide significantly more economic from a range of large-scale processes, such as power generatio...

Norwegian CO2 capture project completes testing phase

30 November 2017, Published under Cement News

A 'key milestone' on a collaborative project to deliver CO 2 capture technology efficiency has been reached claims Westec Environmental Solutions (Verditek group) and project partners Sintef and the Carbon Capture & Conversion Institute. The pilot-scale project passed a key milestone on Wednesday, successfully completing the initial testing phase using independent testing at the Sintef facility in Norway. Verditek said the next and penultimate phase of the project would comprise solve...

SINTEF partnership brings commercial carbon capture close

08 March 2017, Published under Cement News

Hawaii-based Westec Environmental Solutions (WES) is partnering with SINTEF in Norway to push forward the development of carbon capture with more advanced technology. WES's innovative contractor design captures CO 2 with the assistance of a solvent. This approach has the advantage over previous technologies in that the vessels are compact and can tolerate solids formed by precipitates without clogging. "The aim of this very exciting project is to demonstrate, for the first time, a ...

Raw MSW gasification at Conch Tongling Cement

25 July 2016, Published under Cement News

To enable Conch Tongling Cement to burn a higher rate of alternative fuels, an integrated gasification system was installed and duly tested. The system converts organic or fossil fuel-derived carbonaceous materials into CO, H and CO 2 and without combustion, produces a fuel that can be used in cement production.
