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 CO2 emitted 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
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
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 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

Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 to Collaborate to Develop Carbon Capture & Storage Hub for Industrial Cluster in Norway
Baker Hughes and Borg CO2 AS have announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to collaborate on a carbon capture and storage project to serve as a hub for the decarbonization of industrial sites in the Viken region of Norway.
The Borg CO2 project includes several industry partners, as well as the Port of Borg, and aims to capture and store emissions from industrial facilities located in the cities of Fredrikstad, Sarpborg, and Halden.
Borg CO2’s “industrial cluster” approach provides a prime opportunity for Baker Hughes to test and scale its wide-ranging carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technologies portfolio on several types of processes including its Chilled Ammonia Process (CAP) and Compact Carbon Capture (CCC) solutions.
News and resources
While significant progress is being made, the industry needs to see a strong business case for CCUS. In addition to developing policies that promote investment in CCUS, DOE is investigating new ways to extract an economic benefit or additional value from capture CO2.
