February 15th, 2018Carbon Clean Solutions awarded innovation grant from UK Government
A consortium led by Carbon Clean Solutions Limited (CCSL), a global leader in design, development and deployment of carbon capture technology, has been awarded a research and development grant worth almost £900,000 by the UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The grant will enable CCSL to progress its research into further lowering the cost of carbon capture technology. The ultimate aim is to develop a solution that is affordable on a large scale.
The grant was awarded based on preliminary research already conducted by CCSL and Newcastle University in 2016, the results of which were positive and indicated the potential for the technology to be developed further. The grant will enable CCSL to build a large-scale carbon capture testing facility at the University of Sheffield, which will be the world’s first integrated plant of its kind.
CCSL has a strong track record in this area, having launched the world’s first fully commercial carbon capture utilisation and storage (CCUS) plant in India in 2016. The ground-breaking project, which was privately financed, captures carbon dioxide (CO2) at just $30 per tonne – much lower than the $60-90 per tonne capture costs typically observed in the global power sector.
With this latest grant, it is hoped that the technology can be further refined to capture CO2 at $20 per tonne.
Prateek Bumb, CTO and Co-Founder of CCSL, said: “This grant is a testament to the importance of developing affordable carbon capture technology, which can be rolled out on a large scale. This technology will play a crucial role in helping the UK meet its energy targets. It’s really encouraging that the UK government continues to recognise the importance of the work we are doing in this area”.
