The use of a alkaline hydroxide (Mg) can be utilised in an appropriate reactor to produce a carbonate in the presence of CO2. This effective sequestration technique could have large implications for National Grid's compressor fleet.

The programme will look to test the trial unit to validate the initial claims.
The objective of this project is to complete the build and commissioning of CCC’s containerised carbon capture demonstrator and install, commission and run trials using boiler-house flue gases on a National Grid gas site. The output from this project may feed into a future project to implement this technology on a larger scale at a National Grid compressor station.
The CCC technology has considerable potential for reducing CO2 emissions from NG’s compressor fleet.
