Carbon capture and storage with alkaline-rich materials
Sweden has set a goal to reach zero level greenhouse gas emissions by 2045. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has an important role to play in meeting this goal. Carbonation-based CCS wherein alkaline materials are converted to thermodynamically stable carbonates is globally considered the safest CCS technology. However, low reactivity of feedstocks leading to high operational costs is the main barrier to the commercialization of this technology.
RISE together with academia and industry are actively developing through research cost-efficient carbonation-based CCS systems wherein alkaline-rich materials in pure forms as well as industrial residues can be applied for CO2 capture.
