Calcium looping technology soaking-up CO2 from power plants

Soaking-Up CO2 from Power Plants: HECLOT from Taiwan Captures up to 90 Percent of Emissions. The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI ), Taiwan's largest and one of the world's leading, high-tech applied research institutions, introduces High Efficiency Calcium Looping Technology (HECLOT), a calcium looping technology developed to reduce carbon emissions from fossil power plants. It is the first affordable and energy-efficient solution to achieve a CO2 capture rate of up-to-90 percent. It reduces energy consumption using a cycling of calcination and carbonation method used to capture CO2, which ultimately enables coal-fired power generation to become clean electricity. HECLOT is able to achieve an initial capture cost lower than $30 per tonne of CO2 in a fossil fuel power plant, saving more than half when compared to the current capture cost of $58 per tonne of C...
