Tackling climate change CO2 Capture

Background – Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a technology that can capture up to 90% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions produced from the use of fossil fuels in electricity generation and industrial processes, preventing the carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere.

The first stage in the CCS process is the capture of CO2 released during the burning of fossil fuels, or as a result of industrial processes such as making cement, steel or in the chemical industry.

Capture technologies separate carbon dioxide from gases in electric-ity generation and may be done in at least three different ways: pre-combustion capture, post-combustion capture and oxy-fuel combustion. Similar methods are also used for industrial processes.

Common for all methods are the need for installation of scrub-bers for cleaning the gasses. A service Biobe may offer.

EUs roadmap for 2050 estimates that a total of 70 billion tonnes of CO2 must be captured and stored.

Researchers around the world are working to find proper methods for CO2 Capture and pumping it down below the ground where it can last for several thousand years. Norway is among the frontrunners in this development and Biobe is connected as an industrial partner for the required internals and infrastructure.

Example of a Biobe absorber design – Combined SO2 and CO2 cleaning

The first scrubber does the cleaning of fluid gas from SO2. The second scrubber cleans and collects CO2 in the amine system, the socalled afterburning technology principle.

The technical description of the Carbon dioxide scrubber – clean-ing procedure for CO2

Performance; amine gas treating, also known as amine scrubbing, gas sweetening and acid gas removal.

  • This refers to a group of processes that use aqueous solutions of various alkylamines (simply amines) to remove H2S and CO2 from gases
  • It is a common unit process used in refineries, and is also used in petrochemical plants, natural gas processing plants and other industries
  • The most commonly used amines in industrial plants are alkanolamines DEA, MEA and MDEA
  • These amines are also used in many oil refineries to remove sour gases liquid hydrocarbons such as lignified petroleum gas (LPG)

Maritime carbon capture

Maritime regulation

A global approach to improve effective emission control is needed as sea transport will continue growing apace with world trade. There are mandatory measures to reduce emissions from international shipping.

Controlling CO2 emission is crucial to mitigate global warming and Carbon dioxide from ships at sea. The world’s shipping industry has now, defined its commitment to tackle climate change. A promising way to tackle the problem is to capture the CO2 from the ship’s exhaust gases and storing it onboard until the ship reaches a port where the CO2 can be unloaded.

Weight and CAPEX for Equipment + amine + CO2 storage tanks

With the implementation of well-proved light weight cost effective plastics internals and packings from Biobe inside the maritime scrubber, the weight is acceptable.

Cheaper and lighter plastic materials of construction will reduce the CAPEX and have a positive impact on the fuel consumption.

Manufacturing Expertise

Expertise in Products Moulded in Thermoplastics and Glass Reinforced Composites

SMC Moulding gives the designer the freedom to style and develop complex, highly accurate mouldings consolidating a number of parts into a single component, with a high strength to weight ratio, excellent temperature stability and finish. SMC is a type of reinforced composite plastic, which principally consist of a thermosetting resin, glasfibre reinforcement and filler. SMC products offers good mechanical properties, excellent chemical resistance, temperature stability, low smoke and toxicity, electrical insulation and good paint ability among others.

Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) is a low pressure moulding process, where a mix of resin and catalyst are injected into a closed mould containing a fibre pack or preform. When the resin has cured, the mould can be opened and the finished component removed.

R&D /Time to Market. Our team offers customers product development, prototyping, engineering and project management. New technologies like 3D printed tools is also a part of our workflow giving us a leading edge within quick time to market manufacturing.

Injection Moulding of Thermoplastics is a well-established process for manufacturing products with a wide range of styles, shapes and technical requirements. Injection Moulding offers high cycle time and competitive pricing for a large selection of different materials. The company has a full range of injection moulding machines from 25 and up to 500 tons clamping force offering thermoplastic products up to 1,5 kg weight.

Engineering and Development – In order to improve the products Biobe is together with universities and research organisations continuously analysing and optimising the process.
