Our member Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, has launched full-scale operation of a compact CO2 capture system, which is now operational in the local biomass powerplant in Hiroshima (JP).

The system has the capacity to capture 0.3 metric tons per day (tpd) and is based on a highly versatile standardised design requiring an installation space of just five meters in length and two meters wide. Its modular configuration enabled rapid transportation to the site and easy installation.

The CO2 captured from the plant’s flue gas will be used for growing vegetables in on-site greenhouses.

This installation is a first of its kind with enormous potential to decarbonise small-scale facilities on the way to carbon net-zero.
