Our member Carbon Clean has been awarded the carbon capture equipment supply contract for Ørsted’s FlagshipONE eMethanol project in Sweden, marking their 50th commercial project milestone. Within the project, Carbon Clean’s technology will capture 70,000 tonnes of CO₂ annually from a biomass-fired combined heat and power plant in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, and combine it with green hydrogen to produce 50,000 tonnes per year of eMethanol for use in the shipping industry.
This is a significant step towards defossilising hard-to-abate sectors such as shipping, which accounts for around 3% of global carbon emissions.
The Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) plant will use Carbon Clean’s proprietary CDRMax technology, which offers a best-in-class environmental footprint and reduced operational costs compared to conventional options.
FlagshipONE is expected to be operational in 2025 and will be Ørsted’s first commercial-scale Power-to-X facility. This is an important steppingstone towards a greener, more sustainable future for all.
