The journey is the destination: Industrial CO2 capture and conversion to enable the transition to a circular carbon economy – e-Refinery
Lunch lecture by Dr.ir. Jurriaan Boon – TNO
As long as energy-intensive sectors such as steel, refining and chemicals are still dependent on fossil fuels and raw materials, it is important to capture and reuse the CO2 that is released. What is not usable can be stored safely, for example in depleted natural gas fields in the North Sea. In the long term, we may even need negative CO2 emissions, something that can be obtained by, for example, storing the CO2 that is released in the use of biomass. At TNO’s expertise cluster Gas Processing, Treatment & Conversion, process intensification has been harnessed to enable the efficient capture and conversion of CO2. Important examples that will be highlighted include sorption-enhanced water-gas shift (SEWGS), membrane reforming, as well as sorption-enhanced DME synthesis (SEDMES). Interestingly, these technologies are already relevant today, but will have an increasing impact as the energy transition materialises.
