WOIMA CARBON CAPTURE: ccWOIMA
Climate change mitigation is one of the biggest challenges facing mankind today. EU has set an aggressive target of cutting greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030 in the European Green Deal. By 2050, Europe aims to become the world’s first climate-neutral continent.
Several simultaneous measures are required to reach those targets. Addressing greenhouse gas generation through reducing emissions from transport, boosting energy efficiency and renewable energy production, as well as promoting innovative low-carbon technologies is one important action path. Another is targeting the current CO2-producing industrial processes with carbon capture technologies.
The ccWOIMA offers a fast-track route to capturing CO2 from different process gases. This modular small-scale solution is based on patented energy-efficient capture technology. It is a stand-alone system that can be installed in virtually any carbon dioxide generating process. The pre-engineered and prefabricated solution offers significant CAPEX savings compared to one-off systems built on site. And the carbon capture process uses standard low-cost industrial chemicals available anywhere in the world. Hence, the ccWOIMA offers unparalleled quality and short delivery time combined with reduced capital and operating costs. Naturally, the ccWOIMA solution combines seamlessly with our wasteWOIMA® power plant offering up to 95% capture rate.
Carbon capture alone does not solve the carbon dilemma. Downstream solutions for the storage (CCS) and utilization (CCU) of the captured carbon dioxide are required to permanently remove the CO2 from circulation. CCS typically consists of transportation of liquefied CO2 to a geological storage in the sub-surface rock formations, depleted oil and gas fields or deep saline formations. The preferred CCU uses CO2 in e.g. hydrocarbon conversion processes, plastics manufacturing and as reactant for various chemical synthesis.
Decarbonizing power industry is the key to success. Today, the energy sector is responsible for over 50% of the total global CO2 equivalent emissions of 52 billion tons p.a. Thus, it is an obvious choice for both CO2 reduction measures and WOIMA target market. EU alone is investing hundreds of millions of euros in the development of the carbon capture sector worth over 10 billion euros annually. And WOIMA is in a unique position to corner the market with its pioneering solution.
WOIMA Corporation is a Finnish supplier of best-in-class waste-to-value products, projects and services worldwide.
