With more than half a century of experience developing comprehensive carbon dioxide capture and storage solutions, KBR is one of world leaders in designing, constructing and optimizing carbon dioxide capture facilities and technologies.
Whether it's pre- or post-combustion carbon capture, carbon dioxide compression or sequestration, we have the capabilities needed to deliver an effective, economical solution.
With an extensive understanding of pre-combustion carbon dioxide capture, KBR has built carbon dioxide removal units for facilities around the world, including the EBIC plant in Egypt and Nitrogen 2000 plant in Trinidad. At these plants and others like them, carbon dioxide is separated and recovered for Urea production.
We are developing technologies to mitigate the emission of carbon dioxide from power plants post-combustion. The Post-Combustion CO2 Capture Unit - an original development - captures the carbon dioxide using a chemical solvent and then utilizes a regenerator to release the carbon dioxide. This unique method has been successfully tested at a natural gas plant at Karsto, Norway.
We have also developed mechanisms to hold captured carbon dioxide for reuse in industrial applications for uses such as enhanced oil recovery and permanent sequestration. The multi-step compression and dehydration process, in which the carbon dioxide is compressed to supercritical conditions, allows the carbon dioxide to be successfully transported. KBR has implemented this technology as part of the In Salah project in Algeria, where we constructed the carbon dioxide compression and dehydration facilities and carbon dioxide pipeline.
KBR is committed to not only delivering answers to meet the needs of our customers, but to serve as environmental stewards in our global community. Our carbon capture and storage capabilities are working to help make these goals a reality.
