CO2CRC undertakes research into capture technologies from bench scale, with our world class university partners, through to pilot scale in the field, at participating power stations and our Otway Research Facility.
Objective: To facilitate field testing and evaluation of the state-of-the-art CO2CRC membrane and adsorption technologies for separation of CO2 during real natural gas processing.
In late 2016 CO2CRC’s experimental capture platform was delivered. The $1M piece of equipment, which is designed to test a number of capture technologies simultaneously, captures CO2 from a natural gas well using novel membrane and adsorbent materials, testing them for efficiency and cost effectiveness.
The platform has been designed to be compact, energy efficient and robust, making it attractive to industry. The intention is to use it initially in off-shore environments, with on-shore applications also possible.
