The Importance of CCS Enhanced with EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) in the Energy Sector
Martin O’Neill
Vice President, Strategy
GE Gas Power
Carbon capture is a key technology for decarbonizing hard-to-abate industries, but also gas power assets. With new commercial units under development worldwide, carbon capture has a bright future for existing and new low-carbon gas turbines. The key is stronger and tighter integration of the two units, the power asset and the carbon capture facility, an area in which GE specializes. Integration is thus the critical element to provide the necessary flexibility of the gas plant in transient phases and to reduce the efficiency penalty due to the energy consumption of the carbon capture unit. Integration is also essential to increase the concentration of carbon dioxide in the exhaust gas and significantly improve the CO2 capture rate through the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) technique.

Integrated Carbon – Challenges and Opportunities in Building the full CCU/S Value Chain for Industrial Clients
Markets for CCU/S solutions are still under development and regulatory schemes are missing in most European countries – still, it is time to act for a lot of industrial companies if they want to reach their carbon goals, both compliance or voluntary targets by 2040. As CCS markets by definition only work with all parts of the value chain - capture, transport, handling, shipping and storage - being developed in parallel, challenges exist along the complete value chain, especially for clients in mainland Europe. Professional risk management and partnering structures on the different value chain stages will be key to become a reliant and reputable specialized full scale service provider in the CCU/S market.

The Application of Post-Combustion Carbon Capture Technology to Cement Manufacture
Michael Baerends
Process Director
Fluor
Andrea Patton
Principal Process Engineer
Fluor
Some industries are considered difficult to decarbonise. Cement manufacture is one such industry, as the carbon dioxide emissions are a result not just of the combustion of fuels or the requirement to power machinery, but of the calcination reaction itself. Cement production accounts for around 7% of global CO2 emissions, with 70% of these emissions coming from the calcination of raw materials. The implementation of carbon capture is essential if the cement industry is to reach net zero. This presentation will provide some details of recent feasibility studies completed by Fluor and Hanson Cement to decarbonise Hanson UK’s Padeswood facility through the application of post-combustion carbon capture. After a general introduction to the cement manufacture process and Fluor’s proprietary Econamine FG PlusSM post-combustion carbon capture technology, the presentation will focus on the specific challenges and opportunities of integrating carbon capture into a cement manufacture facility. Carbon capture plants have a significant footprint in terms of utility requirements – notably for heating, cooling and driving rotating equipment. Opportunities to integrate these utility systems with the host plant will be reviewed. Cement kiln flue gas is characterised as having high levels of dust and other contaminants. The impact that some of these contaminants may have on a capture process and potential mitigations will be discussed. Finally, the results of applying a post-combustion carbon capture technology to cement manufacture will be illustrated, including the potential to achieve carbon-negative operation.

The True Cryogenic Industrial Solution to Capture & Liquefy the CO2 and Enhance the Hydrogen Production
Richard Dubettier
Cryogenic Technology Director
Air Liquide Engineering & Construction
air-liquide-engineering-logo_0
Cryocap™ H₂ is the only technique that enables the reduction of the CO₂ released during the production of hydrogen while also increasing this hydrogen production. Cryocap technology is a clean technology without chemicals, without waste, and with negligible steam consumption. This cryogenic technology is capable of rising to the challenges of the energy transition, and reaching ambitious Climate Objectives. Air Liquide, based on its experience as both operator and designer, proposes to combine the CO2 Capture & Liquefaction units in order to optimize the process, to make plant operation simpler and deliver a more competitive and more compact solution. This combination is fully in line with the main driver for this project, that means to capture CO2 at the lowest cost per ton of CO2 avoided. Cryocap™ H2 could be seen as the first step in CO2 capture investment, by capturing part of CO2 emissions, and at the same time by allowing up to 10% more hydrogen production. The Cryocap™ technology has been selected in 2 large-scale successful projects by the European Union Innovation Fund "Kairos-at-C" and "K6".

As companies in asset-intensive industries develop and evolve strategic plans for carbon mitigation through CCUS, digitalization can play a key role in rapid development, scaling and adoption of the technology. Digital solutions are crucial to accelerate innovation by driving down economics, speeding up the pace of implementation and improving confidence across design and operations of the complete CCUS solution. Companies like Fluor, Carbon Engineering & Technology Centre Mongstad have been using process simulation software to optimize performance and economics of point source and direct air capture technologies. Digital end-to-end optimization and risk analysis across the system, help to identify the best and lowest risk economic outcomes of CCUS projects. With new developments, such as high-performance computing and analytics and AI-based hybrid models, digital solutions can drive further innovation to transform CO2 into useful products, helping to drive down total costs across the carbon lifecycle.

Bilfinger
Carbon capture and storage technology is vital for the decarbonisation of energy-intensive industries, which are responsible for about a fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. At the same time, carbon capture technologies have only been tested on a smaller scale and are still not yet available for multiple energy-intensive industries that need them. What steps should be taken to address economic and political barriers and what support is needed to develop key infrastructure and technology?

Carbon dioxide utilization has gained momentum as a solution to achieve the world’s climate goals. This set of technologies creates financial incentives to capture waste CO2 and can accelerate the uptake of carbon capture, storage, and utilization (CCUS). Many industries are perceiving CO2 as an important feedstock for providing climate-friendly solutions, and at present, there are a wide variety of CO2 utilization technologies being explored, each at different stages of development and commercialization. This presentation will provide an in-depth overview of CO2U technologies and market trends, discussing the technical, environmental, and economic aspects of this industry and its potential. The following questions will be addressed: How is CO2 converted into useful products? What are the key drivers and hurdles for CO2U market growth? What is the CO2U market status and outlook?

Surrogate Modeling for Large-Scale Reservoir Simulations for Geological Carbon Sequestration
Qiuzi Li
Research – Energy Sciences
ExxonMobil Technology and Engineering Company
Large-scale geological carbon sequestration projects involve optimization and decision-making tasks under subsurface uncertainties, where large numbers of forward simulations need to be conducted under various subsurface scenarios and realizations. For this purpose, conventional reservoir simulators could be inefficient due to their high computational cost, whereas (physics-informed) data-driven surrogate modelling has the potential to enable real-time prediction once trained on reasonable amounts of data from full-physics simulations. Several numerical experiments suggest that surrogate modelling could speed up the reservoir simulation significantly and demonstrate the promise of real-time prediction. Lu et al. [Lu, 2021] developed the DeepONet framework for simulating multiple types of physical systems across different scales with complex geometries and have achieved the state-of-the-art results in surrogate modeling. In this presentation, we present our results of the feasibility, accuracy, and robustness of DeepONet on large-scale reservoir simulations for geological carbon sequestration problems.

Large-Scale Geological Hydrogen Storage a Subsurface Perspective on Native Hydrogen and Hydrogen Economy
Nour Koronful
Geoscience & Exploration Senior Geoscientist Digital & Integration DSS – Geosolutions
Schlumberger GmbH
To reach the net-zero emission hydrogen is a key enabler in the energy system. It provides a balance between energy supply and demand over possibly long distances and periods of time and, thus, allows introduction of a higher share of renewable energy sources in the overall energy mix. large-scale storage of hydrogen is required to balance the energy system, which can be most cost-effectively realized in the subsurface using mined salt caverns, depleted reservoirs, or aquifers. This presentation will highlight the critical role of the subsurface specialist in de-risking subsurface storage of hydrogen and in developing these technologies towards deployment. Compatibility of existing wells with hydrogen will be key, in view of their intended re-utilization for storage in depleted reservoirs. From a surface perspective, cost-effective compression and purification of hydrogen needs to be accomplished. Monitoring and verification of storage containment and conformance will be key for public and regulatory acceptance. Here, the detectability of the hydrogen with existing technologies from conventional O&G and CCS need to be verified and possibly improved technologies developed. Native hydrogen occurred naturally in unique setting many exploration concepts are underdevelopment and government and corporate start to look at, a brief summery will be presented
