"We are pleased to report strong preliminary results from the ongoing feasibility study with quicklime producer NorFraKalk, documenting the performance of Ocean GeoLoop´s carbon capture technology for the quicklime and cement industry. The results demonstrate that we are on track to deliver world-class carbon capture," says Odd-Geir Lademo, Chief Executive Officer of Ocean GeoLoop.

The test program at 25% flue gas CO2 concentration confirmed carbon capture rates exceeding 90% and product gas purity of 95%, enabling delivery of liquified CO2 above 99% purity. Ocean GeoLoop targets to provide corresponding data for energy consumption before summer.

“These preliminary results from our ongoing study with Ocean GeoLoop results are good news. This reinforces our faith in the collaboration with Ocean GeoLoop and our commitment to become carbon neutral before 2050”, says Hanne Markussen Eek, Chairman of the Board in NorFraKalk.

The quicklime and cement industry accounts for more than 8% of the world´s CO2 emissions and CO2 capture is necessary to achieve the industry’s climate goals.

“The company is currently working on optimizing the technology for the lowest possible energy use towards the ultimate technical capacity of 100% capture and separation rate when optimally implemented,” Lademo ends.
