Aker Carbon Capture and MAN Energy Solutions join forces to accelerate CCUS in North America

Aker Carbon Capture | January 23, 2024

Aker Carbon Capture and MAN Energy Solutions have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly pursue opportunities related to carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) and CO2 compression in the North American market. The agreement leverages MAN’s expertise in compressor technology and system integration, as well as Aker Carbon Capture’s proven amine technology and carbon capture products. The adoption of standardized and modularized solutions will contribute to drive scale through cost-efficient developments with optimized energy consumption and delivery time.

The two companies are currently collaborating on delivering the world’s first carbon capture plant for the cement industry at Heidelberg Materials’ Brevik CCS project in Norway. 

“We are thrilled to expand our cooperation with MAN Energy Solutions to the North American market, where we see significant potential for CCUS to drive the transition towards net zero”, said Jonah Margulis, Head of North America at Aker Carbon Capture. “This agreement will strengthen our position to remove and reduce carbon emissions from industries and energy solutions, which is supported by strong incentives from the U.S. Government”.

“We are delighted to work with ACC, which appreciates our comprehensive expertise in compressor solutions in general and in the area of CO2 compression in particular. We feel encouraged by the high level of interest in our technical solution concepts that we are on the right path towards sustainable decarbonization of the industries that have previously had particularly high emissions”, said Dr. Marco Ernst, Head of Sales and Project Management CCS at MAN Energy Solutions.

North America is one of the leading regions for CCUS globally, with a large number of projects under development and in operation. According to Rystad Energy, the total volume of CO2 captured could reach 200 million tonnes per year in this region by 2030, which is twice the size of the current European market.
