Aker Carbon Capture signed a letter of intent to deliver two of its Just Catch units as part of a carbon capture project with a capture capacity of 200,000 tonnes per year, the company announced in a press release Jan. 3.
Launched in 2018, Just Catch modules are standardized carbon capture units for the delivery of pure CO₂. Different Just Catch models can be delivered with capacities of 40,000 and 100,000 tonnes per year of CO₂, according to Aker’s website.
“With our field-proven carbon capture technology, we are dedicated to help decarbonize our customer's industrial operations,” Valborg Lundegaard, Aker Carbon Capture’s CEO, said. “Today, we are already in the construction phase of two flagship projects, one in Norway and one in the Netherlands. This new project is a clear testimony of our ambition to be a carbon capture frontrunner.”
The delivery is to an undisclosed European customer. Final investment decision is expected in the second quarter of 2023.
Aker Carbon Capture’s first Just Catch contract was signed for a unit delivery with a capture capacity of 100,000 tonnes per year of CO₂ at sustainable energy supplier Twence’s waste-to-energy facility in the Netherlands.
The letter of intent is an important step to mass producing carbon capture units for the mid-scale emitter market, said the press release.
Based in Oslo, Norway, Aker Carbon Capture is a carbon capture company serving industries with carbon emissions, including the cement, bio and waste-to-energy, gas-to-power and blue hydrogen segments.
