Storing carbon dioxide captured using CO2 scrubbing in tanks and gas bottles

CO2 filling machine

Using the CO2 filling machine, the CO2 captured from the flue gas in the pilot CO2 scrubbing plant can be stored in a tank that can hold 18 tonnes of CO2 or filled into gas bottles. In this way the CO2 can be made available for developing technologies that use CO2 as a raw material, e.g. to manufacture fuels and base chemicals, or for energy storage.

A collaborative project is also in progress with the Jülich Research Centre, which uses the CO2 obtained in this way for plant research.
