Carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) is a crucial part of the global energy transition on the path to a low-carbon world.
For more than 20 years, Bechtel has supported customers in the US, UK and mainland Europe in developing carbon capture solutions for the energy generation sector. To date, we have built more than 40 amine-based CO2/H2S removal systems for LNG plants, gas processing plants, and refineries. We also contributed to the National Petroleum Council’s study: Meeting the Dual Challenge: A Roadmap to At-Scale Deployment of Carbon Capture, Use and Storage.
Innovation and continuous refining of carbon capture facilities is necessary to improve efficiencies, reduce cost and accelerate deployment. We help our customers reduce the power requirements in capturing carbon. In addition we continue to work with the University of Sheffield, other top research universities and the US Department of Energy to develop our understanding and identify improvements approaches for carbon capture. We were previously selected by the World Bank to assess six proprietary carbon capture licensors.
We deliver best-fit solutions for customers by combining our deep knowledge of flue gases with a technology-agnostic approach.
We leverage our knowledge and skills to develop scalable, economical solutions to the carbon challenge, including a generic amine offering that has been optimized for energy balance and minimises ongoing operational costs.
Carbon capture facilities can be retrofitted to existing plants and incorporated as part of new greenfield projects. Where emitters do not have an adjacent pipeline solution, we can help develop schemes to liquify CO2, provide onshore buffer storage and transport via rail or ship to hubs that have the infrastructure for CO2 sequestration.
