Demonstration of new CO2 capture technology

By Gerald Ondrey |

JGC Corp. (Yokohama; www.jgc.co.jp), INPEX Corp. (Tokyo, both Japan; www.inpex.co.jp) and BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) have entered into an agreement to jointly carry out demonstration tests on a new technology for effectively capturing and recovering CO2 contained in natural gas. The tests are carried out at INPEX’s Koshijihara natural gas plant (Nagaoka city, Niigata prefecture) starting August 2010. Natural gas often contains CO2 when it is extracted from the well. Whether the natural gas is transported via pipelines, converted to liquefied natural gas (LNG) or used in chemical processes, the CO2 has to be captured beforehand. Even state-of-the-art CO2-capture processes require a large amount of energy and the removal facilities account for a major part of investment and operating costs. JGC and BASF jointly began developing a new technology for a CO2 capture process called High Pressure Acid Gas Capture Technology (HiPACT) in 2004. Following basic research and a series of trials, the new technology shows a significantly higher CO2 absorption rate than existing processes and is capable of recovering CO2 under high-pressure conditions. An important milestone in this development is transferring the new technology…
