The Centre For Climate And Energy Solutions maintain that developing our carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) capabilities may be the only practical way to achieve decarbonisation in the industrial sector, and we’re inclined to agree.
CCUS technology has the potential to capture up to 90% of the carbon produced by industrial facilities, power plants, refineries and oil rigs. But efforts to cement the UK’s place as a global leader in the CCUS sector have been slow to get off the ground. This is partly because planning, designing and piloting carbon capture and storage is time consuming.
Built to Meet the Needs of Pioneering CCUS Projects
But it is also because the cost of developing, manufacturing and installing the necessary infrastructure can be prohibitively expensive. Glacier Energy aims to help tackle this problem by designing affordable heat exchangers and pressure vessels that are purpose-built to meet the needs of pioneering CCUS programmes around the globe.
Benefiting from over 80 years of hands-on pressure vessel, heat exchanger, thermal and mechanical engineering experience, we’re one of the few UK engineering companies capable of manufacturing the reliable, efficient and well-optimised equipment needed to make your CCUS project commercially viable.
At present, we’re working with track one clusters, HyNet North West and the East Coast as well as the reserve Acorn Cluster to develop economical ways of capturing and storing carbon from industrial facilities and power stations.
