BASF: Pilot Project Achieves Major Carbon Capture Breakthrough
11:50 AM MDT | September 13, 2010 | Alex Scott
BASF said recently that pilot tests show is has made a major breakthrough in a carbon capture technology that it is developing with Linde and power company RWE. The new technology involves separating carbon dioxide from flue gas in a coal-fired pilot power plant. The process, which uses solvents, requires 20% less energy than standard carbon capture processes, BASF says. The technology should enable more than 90% of the carbon dioxide contained in the waste gas of a power plant to be captured for subsequent sub-surface storage or for chemical transformation, for...
