Carbon Clean has contracted KBR to design a modular CO2 capture plant for Ørsted’s FlagshipONE project in Sweden. The plant will be capable of capturing 70,000 metric tons of biogenic carbon dioxide annually from a biomass-fired combined heat and power site. The captured carbon will be used in Ørsted’s FlagshipONE plant to produce 50,000 tons of eFuel and eMethanol to be used in the shipping sector. The FlagshipONE project is aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the shipping sector, which currently accounts for 3% of global emissions. The International Maritime Organization has set targets for reducing CO2 emissions in the shipping industry, and this project is one of many that are being developed to meet these targets. Once operational in 2025, FlagshipONE is set to become Europe’s largest production facility for green eFuel.
It is important that carbon credit schemes also benefit local communities.
The World Meteorological Organisation has stated that 193 countries have given unanimous backing to a scheme to monitor global greenhouse...
