Karlshamn capture pilot

Alstom and E.ON partnered to design and build a pilot capture facility that would demonstrate Alstom's Chilled Ammonia post-combustion CO2 capture process at E.ON's Karlshamn Power Plant in southern Sweden.

The pilot, which has been retrofitted to an auxiliary steam boiler, was designed to capture around 15,000 tonnes of CO2 per year at full capacity. It was commissioned in April 2009 and was then expected to be operated by Alstom for at least 12 months.

The aim of the pilot was to test capture technology ultimately destined for a new gas-fired power plant in Malmo, Sweden. Both companies invested a total of US$15 million in the pilot project. The destination of CO2 captured at the pilot is unknown.
