Abstract

DTU in collaboration with Pentair has designed and constructed a Mobile Test Unit (MTU) capable of separating CO2 from several sources such as biogas, flue gas, etc. The MTU has been located at Amager Resourcecentre (ARC) in the autumn of 2021. ARC is a waste-to-energy facility, located in Amager, Copenhagen. The facility burns approximately 500,000 tonnes of waste annually for the production of up to 63MW of electricity and 247MW of district heating. The plant is designed for flexible operation to accommodate variations in electricity and district heating needs [1].

The aim of this work is to outline the process challenges experienced during the commissioning of the DTU CO2 capture pilot using 30 wt% MEA and with a capacity to capture 1 tonne CO2/day. These experiences are relevant for upscaling carbon capture technologies.

Keywords: carbon capture, pilot-scale, chemical absorption, MEA, waste to energy, CO2
