Carbon Capture for a better tomorrow

Technologies for Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilization (CCS / CCU) enable the separation of CO2 from emission points before it is released to the atmosphere for being used in the production of valuable CO2-based products or for being sequestrated in long-term storages. 

GEA is a worldwide leading provider for air pollution control solutions and has a deep knowledge in gas cleaning and heat recovery processes. GEA´s Carbon Capture portfolio now comes in to extend our already well-established gas cleaning and heat recovery offer by technologies for CO2 capturing as well as options for CO2 transportation and utilization, enabling us to serve our clients with an end-to-end product portfolio.

CO2 can be separated from gas streams by various methods - either by pre- or post-combustion separation or by oxyfuel processes. GEA focusses on tail-end CO2 separation as retrofittability is given and effects on upstream processes are reduced to a minimum. 

Modern CO2 separation concepts employ aqueous amine solutions as solvents as they are confirmed to deliver reliable and proper performance. Hence, GEA´s Carbon Capturing Solution portfolio is based on state-of-the-art amine solvent systems and combines them with GEA´s unique scrubbing technologies in a highly standardized design concept, enabling a fast delivery of an economic CO2 capturing solution. 

We aim to make Carbon Capture a viable and practical solution that can be widely adopted and integrated into existing infrastructures.  By collaborating with our customers and leveraging our technical expertise we strive for unlocking the decarbonization potential in our targeted industries.

GEA´s Carbon Capturing Solutions involves the following process steps for an optimal and economic CO2 reduction:

  • XECO Waste-Heat-Recovery Units
    Use of excess heat from industrial processes and flue gases is the first step towards Carbon Capture & Utilization. The excess heat can be collected and transferred to the Carbon Capturing unit by means of our GEA XECO Waste-Heat-Recovery Systems.

  • SETO Gas Pre-Treatment Units
    An important pre-requisite for Carbon Capturing is Flue Gas Pre-treatment to ensure the long-term stability of the Carbon Capturing system. GEA SETO technology line offers various solutions for cooling and condensing, removing solids, aerosols, sulfuric and nitric oxides and more.

  • CEBO Carbon Capturing Units
    The current state-of-the-art process for large scale Carbon Capturing is by chemical absorption with amines. GEA offers amine-based CO2 capture plants of various sizes under the GEA CEBO line, allowing for CO2 capturing from very diverse exhaust gas compositions.

  • NAVO CO2 Utilization & Sequestration
    The captured CO2 must substitute fossil carbon to avoid anthropogenic GHG emissions. This can be achieved through the Utilization of CO2 for producing CO2 based products or by liquefying and Sequestrating CO2 in long-term storages, both with help of GEA Technologies.
