Mitsubishi heavy industries Engineering and Mitsubishi Industries Engine &Turbocharger will launch a testing demonstration of carbon capture technology in gas engine generator sets.
The testing will last for 10 months and will begin in July 2022, marking Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engineering’s (MHIENG) first initiative capturing CO2 from gas and flue gas.
The trial will be carried out using a compact CO2 capture system and installed in gas engine generator sets making up part of an in-house power station at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger’s (MHIET) Sagamihara Plant in Japan.
The demonstration will examine the impact of gas engine flue gas properties on capture performance and evaluate the component makeup of the captured CO2.
The group will also explore ways to utilise the captured CO2 by liquefaction testing of the gas to facilitate its handling.
“Verification will also be performed on an operation support service utilising MHIENG’s proprietary remote monitoring system,” commented MHI Group in a statement.
“A fully integrated customer support structure will be put in place encompassing all aspects from CO2 capture system introduction plans for gas engines and other facilities, to after-sale services, maintenance, and operation.”
