Amager Resource Center applies for $140M in funding for CO2 capture Project

July 3, 2021 |

In Ohio, Babcock & Wilcox Environmental will support Amager Resource Center’s application for more than €120 million ($140 million USD) in European Union funding to build an advanced carbon dioxide capture facility at ARC’s Amager-Bakke (Copenhill) waste-to-energy facility in Copenhagen, Denmark.

B&W has submitted a letter of support for ARC’s funding application to the E.U.’s Innovation Fund and intends to collaborate closely with Italy-based Saipem and Denmark-based Novozymes to develop the project if funding is approved and ARC selects the team’s proposal.

B&W will utilize its significant operational and engineering knowledge of the facility’s process systems as well as its SolveBright regenerable solvent technology to facilitate an integrated design. B&W previously designed and supplied the combustion and emissions control systems, including the advanced DynaGrate waste-to-energy combustion grate, for the state-of-the-art Copenhill plant.

As part of the ClimAid Copenhagen initiative, ARC announced plans to install CO2-capture technology at Copenhill and capture and sequester 500,000 tonnes of CO2 annually.
