Hipercap - high performance capture


The objectives of the HiPerCap project are:

  • Develop CO2 capture processes with the aim of reducing the total efficiency penalty by 25% compared to state-of-the-art capture technology demonstrated in the EU project CESAR and deliver proof-of-concepts for each technology.
  • Improve the process designs to reduce capital and operating costs considering aspects such as environmental impact, operability and flexibility, size of equipment, and choice of materials.
  • Assessment of new and emerging technologies and processes for identification/selection of the two most promising breakthrough capture processes.
  • Establish a technological roadmap for the further development of the two selected breakthrough capture processes.
