Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging method of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of power plants. In a process called ‘scrubbing’, the carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed into chemical solvents consisting of amines or carbonates. Scrubbing is a well-established method of carbon capture, with virtually every commercial CO2 capture plant in operation using this process. In the process, the first step is the removal of impurities from the flue gas, such as hydrocarbons and oxides of both nitrogen and sulfur (NOx and SOx). Next the purified gas is passed through an absorption column filled with the chemical scrubbing solvent. The solvent reacts with the carbon dioxide and selectively absorbs it from the gas stream. When CO2-rich solvent is heated, the carbon dioxide is released as a nearly pure gas.

Many organizations in the industrial sector are investigating possibilities to improve their (sustainable) energy profile. The renewable energy sector currently offers a broad scale of options with significant capacity for growth and new projects and expanding upon existing infrastructures. In the industrial sector, biogas can replace the current natural gas consumption. DMT has extensive experience within various industries and knows her way around. For more than 28 years we have been advising our customers on reducing CO₂ and SOx emissions, wastewater treatment and (bio)gas desulphurisation and upgrading.
