Tomorrows solutions for CO2 capture

Fjell Technology Group can provide experienced project management and project resources for consultation, facilitation or development of different technologies within the greentech area.

In 2007, Statoil took initiative for a Development process aming for a CO2 capturing process compact and lightweight enough for an offshore installment. Fjell Technology Group is now, on behalf of an initiative coowned by Amtech and CMR Prototech, heading a Equinor (former Statoil) and Climit-funded Project for developing and commercializing the Technology.

Keeping the capturing installment small and light-weighted, the Technology is also very well suited for Onshore based industry. The capturing units are modulated scalable, which provides more flexibility and significantly lower Capex than traditional Amine-based CO2 capturing. It will also be able to make capturing of CO2 at smaller emission points, even marine installations, commercially interresting.

The project team consists of researchers and developers from Tel-Tek (now part of Sintef), CMR Prototech, Equinor and Fjell Technology Group. Visit the Product site to read more about the 3C Technology.

The 3C technology captures CO₂ at a lower cost and in a more environment-friendly way than conventional methods. Installing the technology will lead to immediate reductions in carbon emissions.

The technology aims to reduce capital expenditure by 50 per cent without losing capacity or efficiency. It also lowers operating expenses compared to conventional capture plants.

The 3C technology can be installed on most of the existing sources of carbon emissions. Globally, the emissions catchable with carbon capture and storage technology exceeds 10 billion metric tons per year.

The 3C technology was invented in collaboration with Fjell Technology Group, Equinor, CMR Prototech and SINTEF. The development project was initiated by Equinor in 2007, while the first patent for the technology was granted in 1999. The project is funded by Climit, the Norwegian governmental financing initiative for carbon capture and storage.

2008-2014: The 3C technology was developed as a project under Equinor’s management.

2015: Fjell Technology Group is given the role as project lead. Several project phases were launched under Climit and Equinor support.

2018: The company Compact Carbon Capture AS was established, and all the IP and know-how was transferred from Equinor and Fjell Technology Group management periods to Compact Carbon Capture.

2019: The development continued in collaboration with all the partners Equinor, Fjell Technology Group, Sintef and CMR Prototech. The technology were now at a “10 tonne per day Pilot”-stage, and continued towards a market ready technology.

2020: Several exciting things are waiting to happen, and interesting news are on the steps, including onboarding of several new partners.

Currently we are heading three projects for capturing CO2.

First project (now seperated as a single purpose company) is within the 3C-area, using amine as sorbent. Our main goal is to reduce size and weight compared to traditional carbon capture Technology. The other two use Carbonate looping, featuring state of the art Nano-Technology.

In 2016, Fjell Technology Group started a Climit-founded a Project initiated by Our Research partners NTNU and Sintef. In 2017, there was started another Project within the same Group. The projects aim to develop solid sorbent technologies to capture co2 with a significantly lower energy penalty than a corresponding process using amine.

Fjell Technology Group is, in collaboration with SINTEF and NTNU in addition to the MBCL technology, developing several methods for H2 (Hydrogen) production.

The technologies are Carbon neutral, either through capturing CO2 when producing H2 from Methane, or producing H2 from already carbon neutral material. Both technologies can deliver Hydrogen as a non-emitting CO2 source of energy, and the aim is to reduce parasittic use of energy compared to electrolysis.

The technology is developed as a project delivery for Amtech AS and will later on be commercialized as a single purpose company.
