Kanfa and Carbon Centric pioneer carbon capture at waste-to-energy plant


Norway – Kanfa has secured a project from Carbon Centric to implement the first full-scale carbon capture plant for a Waste-to-Energy facility.

The primary goal of this initiative is to demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of integrating carbon capture technology into waste-to-energy operations. By capturing carbon dioxide emissions from the incineration process, the project aims to mitigate environmental impact and contribute to global efforts to combat climate change. Additionally, the production of food-grade quality liquefied CO2 underscores the potential for carbon reuse, further enhancing sustainability objectives.

The carbon capture plant, to be installed at the Østfold Energi facility in Rakkestad, Norway, will utilize post-combustion CO2 capture technology. Kanfa’s expertise in process engineering, coupled with licensed proprietary amine solvent technology from parent company Technip Energies, will enable efficient capture and treatment of CO2 emissions. The plant’s design includes provisions for the liquefaction of CO2, ensuring compatibility with various downstream applications.

The implementation of carbon capture technology at the waste-to-energy plant has far-reaching implications for emissions reduction and resource utilization.
