Successful Commissioning of Exhaust Gas Feeding System into Carbon Capture Pilot Plant

We successfully commissioned the exhaust gas feeding system into our carbon capture pilot plant, located on the premises of RWE. During the test, a diesel engine was run at full load, and all of its exhaust gas was fed into the carbon capture unit.

Remarkably, we achieved a CO2 capture rate of over 90%, approximately 95%, despite the diesel exhaust having a lower CO2 content compared to the lignite-fired power plant emissions. This difference posed a greater challenge to the capture process, requiring extra vigilance and expertise from our operators. However, they managed the process efficiently and effectively.

While there are still some open items that need to be addressed, we are pleased to report that the system is now operational.
