Description

A CCS pilot project in Mississippi led by nonprofit research institute RTI International.

The project is in collaboration with International Paper (IP), SLB, and Amazon. RTI is the technology developer, SLB is the technology deployment partner, IP is the host site, and Amazon is the end user.

The project implements RTI’s non-aqueous solvent (NAS) technology to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. It is located at IP’s Vicksburg Containerboard Mill.

The project aims to capture 120,000 metric tons of CO2 per year and direct it to a site for permanent geologic storage.

Phase 1 of the pilot project will conduct a FEED study for the carbon capture system at IP’s containerboard mill. If successful, subsequent phases would lead to permitting, construction, and operation of a carbon capture plant.

The project is among four selected by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Clean Energy Demonstrations for up to $304m in funding for transformational technologies designed to capture CO2. The other three projects are in Kentucky, Texas, and Wyoming.
