Siemens and TNO: strategic cooperation in CO2 capture

By Gerald Ondrey |

Siemens Energy (Erlangen, Germany; www.siemens.com/energy) and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO; Delft, Netherlands; www.tno.nl) , have signed an exclusive cooperation agreement aimed at the further advancement of amino-acid salt-based carbon capture technology. Carbon capture technologies in the eco-friendly utilization of fossil-fueled power plants will play a significant role in the future. The partnership targets faster time to market for this promising second-generation technology and the implemenatation of a full-scale demonstration plant by 2014. Both Siemens and TNO possess comprehensive know-how in the field of CO2 capture. Siemens is developing a proprietary second- generation amino-acid process for CO2 capture in the industrial park Frankfurt Hoechst. TNO has been performing its own research activities in this field since the nineties. Both partners see major potential for full-scale application in eco-friendly solvents based on amino-acid salt. Under the terms of the agreement, know-how and experience in this area are now to be bundled in order to leverage synergies and better utilize common resources. The process is to be further optimized with respect to power demand, and the associated…
