Ecospray awarded ocean based carbon capture pilot in Norway
Ecospray, the Italian decarbonisation solutions supplier, has announced that it will participate as a technical supplier in a groundbreaking pilot project to capture carbon dioxide (CO2) from seawater in Norway.
The company will provide CO2 liquefaction technologies to Captura, a US-based company spun off from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), which is focused on carbon removal via the oceans. Captura has partnered with Equinor to build a 1,000-ton/year CO2 capture pilot system at Equinor’s processing facility in Kårstø, on the west coast of Norway.
Ecospray is scheduled to deliver the pilot’s CO2 liquefaction system in the third quarter of 2024.
