The biogenic feedstock will be utilised in a gasification process to produce a clean and hydrogen rich synthesis gas, which will be combusted in gas engines to produce 20 - 25 MW electricity for the grid in southern Sweden. Aker Carbon Capture will provide two Just Catch 100 modularised carbon capture units to capture up to 200 000 tpy of CO2 from the flue gas of both the gasification process and the gas engines. The CO2 will be liquefied for transport by train to storage. As the captured CO2 will be biogenic in origin, sequestering it in permanent geological storage will result in negative CO2 emissions.
"We are excited to support Nordbex with our carbon capture technology on their path to providing clean baseload energy to local communities in Sweden, while removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere," said Jon Christopher Knudsen, Chief Commercial Officer at Aker Carbon Capture. "Bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) has been identified as playing a key role in Sweden's goal to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. The award from Nordbex further strengthens Aker Carbon Capture's position in the growing Swedish market, where we were awarded several study contracts over the course of 2023."
Sweden aims to become carbon neutral by 2045 and to achieve negative net CO2 emissions in the ensuing years. As part of these ambitions, Sweden, a country with a large bio-energy sector, is positioning itself to become a global leader in generating high quality and durable carbon dioxide removal (CDR) credits from bioenergy with carbon capture and storage.
