Aker Carbon Capture has been awarded a test campaign and feasibility study for Fortum Waste Solutions’ facility in Nyborg, Denmark. Fortum’s waste incineration plant is specialized in the safe destruction of hazardous waste and turning it into energy. The planned capture capacity will be around 170,000 tonnes CO2/year.
Aker Carbon Capture is currently delivering a first-of-a-kind modular carbon capture facility at Twence’s waste-to-energy plant in Hengelo, the Netherlands. The company will bring learnings from this project to the Fortum decarbonization study.
Fortum Waste Solutions has extensive experience in handling hazardous waste. At the facility in Nyborg, the hazardous waste is safely transformed into energy in the form of district heating, which covers around 85% of Nyborg Municipality’s heating demand.
An important part of the project will be the test campaign performed by Aker Carbon Capture’s Mobile Test Unit. The results from this test campaign can be used towards a large-scale carbon capture plant.
