University of Melbourne commissions carbon capture mini-plant
Date:22 May 2012
The UNO MK3 carbon capture mini-plant will be part of significant industrial trials of a new carbon dioxide capture process with the potential to substantially reduce the costs of CCS.
“The UNO mini-plant uses a solvent similar to baking soda to separate carbon dioxide from a gas stream, such as the flue gas from a power station,” said Professor Dianne Wiley, Capture Program Manager of CO2CRC.
The UNO mini-plant is highly flexible, so that every aspect of the new process can be studied, varied and optimised.
