Advancing new energy frontiers with carbon capture technology

We are committed to driving growth in carbon capture technology through a combination of in-house research and development, partnerships, and new ventures. 

We have already made a number of investments in carbon capture technologies to advance the decarbonization of energy and industry.

Technologies that meet the needs of your carbon emissions challenges

Different post-combustion technologies offer different benefits and can be applied to capture COemitted by cement factories, gas turbines, waste-to-energy plants, reformers, and steel mills.

Our subject matter experts are committed to identifying the right solutions based on our customers' specific needs. And we offer a selection of commercially ready solutions, such as our chilled ammonia process (CAP).

Our evolving our carbon capture capabilities

Icon Well production
Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP)

CAP is a post-combustion carbon-capture process that uses a non-proprietary solvent formulation based on readily available ammonia. It has achieved technology readiness level 7 according to the H2020 definition. 


  • High CO2 purity and delivery pressure
  • Tolerant to oxygen and flue gas impurities
  • No degradation + no emission of trace contaminants
  • Efficient capture of CO2 (90%)
  • Low-cost, globally available reagent

Compact Carbon Capture (CCC)

Our CCC technology uses centrifugal forces to distribute the solvent employed for capturing CO2—enabling more effective solvent distribution that enhances mass transfer. 

CCC has achieved technology readiness level 4.

  • Lower CAPEX vs. conventional systems
  • Easy installation and retrofittable
  • Compact and efficient
  • Less solvent inventory vs. conventional systems
  • Solvent agnostic

MSP Square icon
Mixed Salt Process (MSP)

MSP is a post-combustion, carbon-capture process that uses a novel solvent formulation based on readily available potassium and ammonia. It has achieved technology readiness level (TRL) 4 and a pilot for demonstrating TRL 6 is under execution.

  • No solvent degradation
  • Reduced generation of by-products
  • Reduced water use
  • Reduced energy consumption
  • Lower emissions to atmosphere
