Carbon Clean Solutions Ltd (CCSL) has announced that it has agreed to partner with Veolia for large-scale carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and industrial re-use.
The agreement, which will see the large scale rollout of CCSL’s patented CO2 separation technology, provides the two partners with an opportunity to reduce the impact of the greenhouse effect of industrial activities.
CCSL recently announced the successful commissioning of its flagship project in Tamil Nadu, India, where a coal-fired power plant has become the site of the first industrial installation to re-use all its CO2 emissions. The project will ensure 60 000 tpy of CO2 are captured and then converted into soda ash, a chemical compound that is commonly used in glassmaking.
Laurent Auguste, Executive Vice President Innovation & Markets at Veolia, said: “This partnership is a fantastic illustration of Veolia’s Open Innovation strategy to partner with the most promising industries to stay one step ahead with solutions and technology […] With CCSL, we will mitigate CO2 emissions and enhance the prospects for the circular economy around carbon capture and its use by industry. It demonstrates Veolia’s commitment to co-create solutions to fight climate change.”
Aniruddha Sharma , CEO of CCSL, adds: “The partnership with Veolia will further boost our mission to help companies lower their carbon footprint in a cost-effective and sustainable manner. Our cuttingedge technology and Veolia’s extensive service offering in water, energy and waste represents an ideal alliance.”
