Shell Cansolv Technology Used At The First Commercial-Scale Post-Combustion Carbon Capture And Storage Plant

Oct 2, 2014

Shell Cansolv technology is capturing the carbon dioxide (CO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2) at SaskPower’s new world-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) project in Saskatchewan, Canada, which has opened today. The SaskPower facility at the Boundary Dam Power Station is expected to capture around 1 million tonnes of CO2 per year, which is up to 90% of CO2 emissions from one train of the power plant. It is the first commercial-scale post-combustion carbon capture system at a coal-fired power plant in the world.

Shell Cansolv and Technip to strengthen CO2 capture technology

Sep 30, 2013

Shell Cansolv and Technip have signed an agreement to leverage their respective expertise in marketing an end-to-end solution for Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) projects. The agreement enables both Technip and Shell Cansolv to offer a full chain of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for a post-combustion CO2 capture project to the power generation industry.

The collaboration between two industry leaders will see Shell Cansolv capitalize from Technip’s experience in the design, construction, and management of large EPC projects and its commercial global footprint. This new cooperation will also expand Shell Cansolv’s international reach by giving the company a platform to offer its CO2 capture technology in increased scope as well as to new markets.
