Carbon capture and storage

CO2 emissions from power plants are a major climate challenge. Sulzer is a leading manufacturer and service provider of pumps and mass transfer equipment that are critical for the carbon capture and storage technologies.

  • Highly efficient separation packings to capture carbon dioxide at their point of origin
  • Beyond pumps for capturing, high-performance pumps reliably produce the high pressures needed to transport the captured and compressed carbon dioxide
  • These high-pressure pumps also inject the carbon dioxide safely into depleted gas reservoirs, saline formation, or unminable coal beds for long-term storage
