The department Gas Treatment plays an important role in the transition towards a more sustainable energy mix. We develop techniques to remove CO2 from amongst others flue gas. We are building pilots to purify Biogas and we do research on the removal of harmful substances from natural gas. Also we build processes that transfer CO2 to chemicals or Natural Gas to liquid Fuel.
Which have economical, environmental or technical advantages over existing gas processing plants. We are world leader in the field of CO2 Capture research. This leading position originates from a combination of solid funded models and unique experimental facilities like our mobile gas treatment plants which can run at the customer location or our large scale CO2 capture installation, attached to a coal fired power plant in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In addition we oversee the entire chain, capture, transport and storage of CO2.
The same expertise and skill are also used to create innovative processes that remove H2S, SOx and CO2 from either Biogas or Natural Gas. Innovative ideas are tested first by means of modeling to test their technological and economical feasibility. Then a small-scale lab unit is build to validate proof-of-concept. Our expertise is used also to come up with new concepts to use CO2 as a feedstock or to convert gas to liquid, as well as debottlenecking process-installation.
The department of Gas Treatment has its background in process technology.:
