Japan’s MHI to provide CO2 capture system for Hiroshima biomass plant

A compact carbon dioxide (CO2) capture system order has been received by the engineering arm of Japanese company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) for incorporation into a biomass power plant.

Provided by MHI Engineering (MHIE) for construction company Taihei Dengyo Kaisha (TDK), the installation will hope to advance emission reduction efforts in addition to meeting net zero targets.

Capable of capturing 0.3 metric tonnes of carbon per day, the system will be integrated into a 7-megawatt (MW) class biomass power plant operated by TDK in Hiroshima City, Japan.

The ordered system follows a testing procedure which aimed to assess the possibility of capturing CO2 from a biomass flue gas source – using the KS-1 amine solvent, based on the bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) project operated by Drax Group in the UK.

Claiming a versatile, compact design, the standardised 5m by 2m capture unit is considered easily transportable, with its modular configuration allowing it to be mass produced with fewer future maintenance costs.
