Aker Solutions has signed an agreement for delivery of carbon capture and liquefaction at Twence's waste-to-energy plant in Hengelo in the Netherlands. The solution that will capture Twence's CO2 emissions is called Just Catch, a modular carbon capture system developed by Aker Solutions to be as simple, low-cost and environmentally friendly as possible.

Twence converts 1 million tons of waste to energy every year, from households and other sources. A majority of the waste comes from bio materials. To contribute to the Netherlands' progress towards the goals set in the Paris climate agreement in 2015, Twence ran a public procurement process to find a carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) provider. Major determining factors for winning the competition were price, time to implement and environmental attributes. Aker Solutions has gained the experience necessary to meet these requirements through a long-term commitment to CCUS.

Aker Solutions has previously gained one year operational data collection and experience from carbon capture at a waste to energy plant similar to Twence. The Just Catch and liquefaction plant at Twence's facilities has a capacity of 100,000 tons of CO2 per annum (TPA) and is planned to be in operation by 2021. Once the CO2 is captured and liquefied, it will be supplied by road tankers to users such as nearby greenhouses, where it will increase the yields of plants and vegetables. This supply replaces emissions from the traditional method of producing CO2 for greenhouses: burning fossil fuels.

Just Catch is standardized and can be delivered in several different sizes, ranging currently from 10,000 to 100,000 TPA. Just Catch can therefore meet the needs of different-sized operations, for example waste-to-energy, fossil power plants or cement factories. It will help customers realize their carbon capture ambitions with predictable costs, implementation time and physical footprint. Once the system is fabricated, Aker Solutions can deliver the four process container modules by trucks, in a single shipment.
