Alstom-EDF started testing in Le Havre

Filed under:

Alstom-EDF's CCS project in Le Havre, France, has captured its first tonne of CO2.

The intent of these tests is to confirm the predicted quantity of energy and amine solvent required to operate the unit, so as to assess whether the process is worthwhile from a cost and an environmental standpoint. They will also look at how the unit performs in an industrial setting, as well as how flexible it is to use within a fully operating power plant. Such tests represent a crucial step in developing efficient industrial solutions for capturing CO2.

The objective is to capture 1 tonne of CO2 per hour. The project does not have a storage yet, as it is only testing the capture part of CCS.
