Breakthrough CO2 capture in ConsenCUS project

This week, the ConsenCUS project achieved a fantastic milestone: at the Aalborg Portland (DK) cement plant, it succeeded in capturing the first CO2 with the electrochemical CO2 capture plant realised by the project.

The custom-made electrochemical ‘stacks’ being demonstrated have not been used on this scale for this application before. It is ‘cold CO2 capture’ and that is just the beginning. The final technical obstacles were tackled on site by a team consisting of WETSUS postdoc Sara Vallejo Castaño, DTU process engineers István Györbiró and Magor Demeter and Ammongas chief engineer Tim Nærvig.
