Aker Carbon Capture has been awarded a feasibility study for the development of two carbon capture plants for Röhm, a leading chemicals manufacturer, to capture nearly 500,000 tons CO2 per year.
Aker Carbon Capture will deliver a pre-engineering study to the energy company St1 for the development of a carbon capture facility at Finnsementti's Lappeenranta cement plant. The captured CO2 would be used for the first renewable synthetic methanol plant in Finland. Aker Carbon Capture's Just Catch unit could capture around 40,000 tonnes CO2 per year, enabling the production of 25,000 tonnes of methanol per year.
Today, the world's first carbon capture pilot for smelters has been officially inaugurated. The Mobile Test Unit (MTU), delivered by Aker Carbon Capture, is now connected to Elkem's plant in Rana, which produces high-purity ferrosilicon and microsilica.
