PMW Technology received the Fossil Fuels Award at the Rushlight Show 2018-19 for the outstanding A3C carbon capture process. The Rushlight show is a key event showcasing low carbon energy innovation. Find out more.
Carbon capture is vital to decarbonising the global economy, but is seen to be too costly. PMW Technology’s award winning A3C carbon capture process has a life cost of capture up to 70% lower than alternatives.
The process uses an elegant physical separation at low temperature to capture the carbon dioxide from a process gas stream. The physical separation is flexible and efficient, avoiding the costs of chemical consumption and environmental hazards associated with conventional processes.
With only an electricity and process gas connection to the compact A3C process equipment, site interfaces are minimised, while series produced standard modules will further simplify site application and cut the costs of manufacture and installation.
The A3C process is uniquely attractive in applications where carbon emissions cannot be reduced by other means. Many such industrial sources are too small to be considered viable using conventional processes. Application of A3C to these emitters would result in a 10% reduction in UK emissions, equivalent to half of all residential emissions.
