The Importance of CCS Enhanced with EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) in the Energy Sector
Marcus Scholz
Director, Advanced Combined Cycles
General Electric International Inc.
Carbon capture is a key technology for decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries, but also gas power assets. With new commercial units under development worldwide, carbon capture has a bright future for existing and new low-carbon gas turbines. The key is stronger and tighter integration of the two units, the power asset and the carbon capture facility, an area in which GE specializes. Integration is thus the critical element to provide the necessary flexibility of the gas plant in transient phases and to reduce the efficiency penalty due to the energy consumption of the carbon capture unit. Integration is also essential to increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the exhaust gas and significantly improve the CO2 capture rate through the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technique.

Integrated Carbon – Challenges and Opportunities in Building the full CCU/S Value Chain for Industrial Clients
Peter Basche
Task Force Lead CCU/S
E.ON Energy Projects
Markets for CCU/S solutions are still under development and regulatory schemes are missing in most European countries – still, it is time to act for a lot of industrial companies if they want to reach their carbon goals, both compliance or voluntary targets by 2040. As CCS markets by definition only work with all parts of the value chain - capture, transport, handling, shipping and storage - being developed in parallel, challenges exist along the complete value chain, especially for clients in mainland Europe. Professional risk management and partnering structures on the different value chain stages will be key to become a reliant and reputable specialized full scale service provider in the CCU/S market.

The Application of Post-Combustion Carbon Capture Technology to Cement Manufacture
Michael Baerends
Process Director
Andrew Patton
Principal Process Engineer
Some industries are considered difficult to decarbonise. Cement manufacture is one such industry, as the carbon dioxide emissions are a result not just of the combustion of fuels or the requirement to power machinery, but of the calcination reaction itself. Cement production accounts for around 7% of global CO2 emissions, with 70% of these emissions coming from the calcination of raw materials. The implementation of carbon capture is essential if the cement industry is to reach net zero. This presentation will provide some details of recent feasibility studies completed by Fluor and Hanson Cement to decarbonise Hanson UK’s Padeswood facility through the application of post-combustion carbon capture. After a general introduction to the cement manufacture process and Fluor’s proprietary Econamine FG PlusSM post-combustion carbon capture technology, the presentation will focus on the specific challenges and opportunities of integrating carbon capture into a cement manufacture facility. Carbon capture plants have a significant footprint in terms of utility requirements – notably for heating, cooling and driving rotating equipment. Opportunities to integrate these utility systems with the host plant will be reviewed. Cement kiln flue gas is characterised as having high levels of dust and other contaminants. The impact that some of these contaminants may have on a capture process and potential mitigations will be discussed. Finally, the results of applying a post-combustion carbon capture technology to cement manufacture will be illustrated, including the potential to achieve carbon-negative operation.

Mineralization on a Gigaton Era
Inbal Kan-Tor
Head of CCUS Business
Airovation Technologies
Reducing the carbon footprint in the energy sector is imperative in order to achieve the world's climate targets. Furthermore, additional industries are hard-to-abate due to the production process itself. Point source treatment is the type of technology that supports those industries in their pursuit to achieve regulatory compliance and meet public expectations. Capturing the carbon dioxide is only the first step, which must be followed by a solution to treat it. Mineralization can ensure an efficient utilization which enables circular economy, and ultimately an economically viable carbon reduction.

The True Cryogenic Industrial Solution to Capture & Liquefy the CO2 and Enhance the Hydrogen Production
Richard Dubettier
Cryogenic Technology Director
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction
Cryocap™ H₂ is the only technique that enables the reduction of the CO₂ released during the production of hydrogen while also increasing this hydrogen production. Cryocap technology is a clean technology without chemicals, without waste, and with negligible steam consumption. This cryogenic technology is capable of rising to the challenges of the energy transition, and reaching ambitious Climate Objectives. Air Liquide, based on its experience as both operator and designer, proposes to combine the CO2 Capture & Liquefaction units in order to optimize the process, to make plant operation simpler and deliver a more competitive and more compact solution. This combination is fully in line with the main driver for this project, that means to capture CO2 at the lowest cost per ton of CO2 avoided. Cryocap™ H2 could be seen as the first step in CO2 capture investment, by capturing part of CO2 emissions, and at the same time by allowing up to 10% more hydrogen production. The Cryocap™ technology has been selected in 2 large-scale successful projects by the European Union Innovation Fund "Kairos-at-C" and "K6".

Avoiding Hurdles and De-risking Projects
Christina Martavaltzi
Advisory Services Lead
Technology Centre Mongstad
Post-combustion carbon capture technologies are ready to be deployed at full-scale on industrial sites. However, the number of large-scale capture sites currently operating is limited, making sharing the knowledge from these sites one of the most valuable tools to ensure the success of full-scale industrial deployments. At the same time, new technologies and new approaches continue to be developed, with the objective to further reduce capture costs, improve integration with the emitter and reduce footprint, thus facilitating the adoption of CCUS in the industry. These technologies need to be properly demonstrated at meaningful scale before they can be implemented at large scale. This presentation covers how Technology Center Mongstad has been sharing its experience with full-scale capture sites to help them avoid hurdles and derisk these projects, and some typical examples will be discussed.

Hydrogen Fuel to Power a Carbon Circular Economy
Dr. Markus Oles
Head of Carbon2Chem
thyssenkrupp Steel Europe AG
Carbon dioxide reduction plays an important role in many industrial processes aiming net-zero goals. The emission of carbon dioxide can be avoided in certain processes, i.e. production routes, nonetheless there are still important products such as basic chemicals where carbon cannot be replaced or carbon dioxide emissions are unavoidable. Circular economy and carbon in circulation are ways to reduce fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions. If we want to substitute the energy we get from fossil fuel oxidation, new drivers for our processes are needed. Hydrogen plays a crucial role here, as well as the use of carbon dioxide as carbon source.

CO2 Transport Infrastructure: The Key to Unlock the CCUS Value Chain
Leila Faramarzi
CCUS Director
Assuring a safe and cost-effective transport infrastructure is a key step to fully unlock the CCUS value chain. To connect capture plants to storage sites, CO2 transport in hubs has proven to be cost-competitive compared to single-source to single-sink scheme mainly due to economy of scale and offering better feasibility for capture retrofit for industrial facilities. In hubs, the value chain can be optimized to accommodate various emission sources and the transport is delivered via a pipeline (or ship) network. The development of hubs and infrastructure which can be used for multiple emission sources and furthermore facilitate the standardization of the options for infrastructure will reduce the projects timeline and leads to faster decarbonization of our industries. However, the trade-off is the possibility of a wider range of impurities (legacy of each emission point source) carried along with CO2 through the pipeline. This presentation captures key aspects for safe, reliable, and cost-effective design of CO2 transport infrastructure and aims to make these available to project developers, decision makers and regulators working on CO2 transport projects.

Electrical Drive Systems for Evolving CO2 Ecosystem
Dr. Hakan Koç
Vice President
Siemens AG, Large Drive Applications
Umesh Mandlekar
Director, CCUS
Siemens AG, Large Drive Applications
In CCUS process, carbon is captured (Upstream) from the exhaust of the industrial plants or from the generation of blue Hydrogen. The captured CO2 is then transported by pipeline (Midstream) and stored deep underground or reused in hydrocarbon synthesis processes (Downstream). Besides the natural carbon cycle CO2 is becoming a new “Gas” with its own Ecosystem which requires highly reliable Motor & Drive systems for pumps and compressors used at capture, compression, transport and storage stages. Electrical Motor & Drive solution brings high availability as starting or as continuous converters. These converters provide near sinusoidal waveforms at line side and motor side which is a great advantage for installation at industrial plants and on grids in cities.

Large-Scale Geological Hydrogen Storage a Subsurface Perspective on Native Hydrogen and Hydrogen Economy
Nour Koronful
Geoscience & Exploration Senior Geoscientist Digital & Integration DSS – Geosolutions
Schlumberger GmbH
To reach the net-zero emission hydrogen is a key enabler in the energy system. It provides a balance between energy supply and demand over possibly long distances and periods of time and, thus, allows introduction of a higher share of renewable energy sources in the overall energy mix. large-scale storage of hydrogen is required to balance the energy system, which can be most cost-effectively realized in the subsurface using mined salt caverns, depleted reservoirs, or aquifers. This presentation will highlight the critical role of the subsurface specialist in de-risking subsurface storage of hydrogen and in developing these technologies towards deployment. Compatibility of existing wells with hydrogen will be key, in view of their intended re-utilization for storage in depleted reservoirs. From a surface perspective, cost-effective compression and purification of hydrogen needs to be accomplished. Monitoring and verification of storage containment and conformance will be key for public and regulatory acceptance. Here, the detectability of the hydrogen with existing technologies from conventional O&G and CCS need to be verified and possibly improved technologies developed. Native hydrogen occurred naturally in unique setting many exploration concepts are underdevelopment and government and corporate start to look at, a brief summery will be presented
