CO2 capture and utilisation (CCU)

Carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and utilisation technology offers a key decarbonisation route in order to meet the climate targets for 2030 and 2050. We have experience in techno-economic analysis of a variety of CCU processes right from a component level to a system level.

Some of the processes include

  • Algal cultivation and conversion
  • Methanol (catalytic hydrogenation) production
  • Formic acid via homogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of CO2 using renewable hydrogen
  • Carbon mineralisation
  • Urea production
  • Polyols
  • Nutraceuticals
  • Biofuels

Techno-economic analysis is a broad term that entails the use of a variety of software tools covering a range of granularity, and covers:

  • Conceptual design, flow sheet and process flow diagrams
  • Costing analysis (CAPEX and OPEX) analysis
  • Pricing elasticity and CO2 pricing
  • Process efficiencies in terms of CO2 usage and energy requirements
  • Avoided and utilised CO2
  • Products and by-product yields
  • Sensitivity to impurities in raw materials/feedstock
  • Technology Readiness Level (TRL) and Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) progression
