GE and Svante see a solid future for carbon capture15 June 2023
GE Gas Power, part of GE Vernova, and Svante have announced a joint development agreement to develop and evaluate solid sorbent-based carbon capture technology for natural gas power generation applications. In addition, GE has made an equity investment in the start-up.
Svante’s novel carbon capture filters are made by coating solid adsorbents, including metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), onto thin sheets of laminate that are stacked to become nano-engineered filters. These filters can be used in multiple applications for capturing CO2, including point-source post-combustion.
The joint development agreement between GE Gas Power and Svante will focus on further development and commercialisation of novel solid sorbent technologies “aimed at decarbonising natural gas-fired turbines in a cost-effective, environmentally responsible manner.”
