Baker Hughes dips into carbon capture

11 November 2020

Baker Hughes announced it is acquiring Compact Carbon Capture (3C), a pioneering technology development company specializing in carbon capture solutions. The acquisition underpins Baker Hughes’ strategic commitment to lead in the energy transition by providing decarbonization solutions for carbon-intensive industries, including oil and gas and broader industrial operations.

“The addition of 3C to our energy technology portfolio complements our strategy, technology and manufacturing strengths in the area of carbon capture”

The advancement of carbon capture technology solutions is widely considered critical to delivering the additional CO2 emissions reduction needed to meet global 2050 climate targets. In the energy and industrial sectors, carbon capture technology is among the most viable decarbonization paths for both retrofitting existing assets as well as for greenfield projects. 3C’s technology can address CO2 capture from different emission sources and can contribute significantly to the decarbonization of customers’ operations.

3C’s technology differs from traditional carbon capture solvent-based solutions by using rotating beds instead of static columns, effectively distributing solvents in a compact and modularized format. The rotating bed technology enhances the carbon capture process resulting in up to 75% smaller footprint and lower capital expenditures. In addition, 3C’s modular and scalable configuration can be easily deployed into existing brownfield applications and can be optimized for a broad range of capacity and applications, including offshore and industrial emitters.
