How to manage technical risk in CO2 capture technology development

Scaling up, integrating and optimising CO2 capture plants can be associated with high risks and costs. Currently, there is a lack of standard codes and procedures to be used, making the development of CCS projects challenging. In this webinar, DNV GL presented the recommended qualification procedure for scaling-up CO2 capture technologies, from the lab to commercial scale.
The technical risks associated with new CO2 capture technologies can be managed through a systematic qualification process. This process focuses on  the identification of the risks and indicates how they can be evaluated and reduced with adequate qualification methods, such as analyses and testing. Aker Solutions illustrated how this procedure has been applied for scaling up their proprietary CO2 capture technology.

This webinar was presented by Anastasia Isaenko, Consultant, Carbon Capture and Storage from DNV GL and Oscar Graff, Chief Technology Officer, Department of Clean Carbon from Aker Solutions.
