BASF, Linde wrap up carbon capture test

Department: Business
Keywords: greenhouse gases, carbon capture, CO2, amines

Chemical giant BASF and the industrial gases firm Linde have completed a pilot project at a Department of Energy facility in Wilsonville, Ala., aimed at improving the capture of carbon dioxide from coal-fired power plants. The test combined an amine-based solvent from BASF with new carbon capture technology from Linde. Given their belief in the success of the project, the partners plan to begin larger-scale testing and explore commercial opportunities. They earlier conducted a similar test in Germany.
