A bright future for carbon capture
Carbon capture specialist O.C.O Technology has secured a five-year contract to recycle the air pollution control residues (APCr) from the renewable energy facility operated by Tilbury Green Power (TGP).
The contract marks a major step forward towards the circular economy, as not only does O.C.O’s accelerated carbonation technology offer a viable recycling alternative to sending the waste to landfill, it also produces a highly-sought after product in the shape of the world’s first lightweight carbon-negative aggregate.
Currently recycling around 30% of the UK’s energy-from- waste (EfW) APCr arisings, O.C.O Technology is a major global player in the field of permanent carbon capture from a commercialised process.
Headquartered in Suffolk, with additional operations in Leeds and Avonmouth, O.C.O utilises an award-winning process known as Accelerated Carbonation Technology (ACT).
This uses waste carbon dioxide (CO2) gas to treat the APCr...
