Carbon Cycle Economy Demonstration


Project Description

The Carbon-Cycle Economy Demonstration (C-CED) project aims to create a sustainable closed carbon cycle by combining and demonstrating various CO₂ capture and CO₂ recovery technologies. The project aims to establish a sustainable and closed carbon cycle by combining and demonstrating various CO₂ capture and CO₂ recovery technologies. This involves capturing CO₂ from various sources on a pilot scale and converting it into renewable methane (methanation), which plays an important role in many industrial processes as a carbon-containing energy source, but also as a raw material. In addition, the project integrates seasonal large-volume storage to create flexibility, which becomes necessary due to the switch to renewable energies.
The C-CED project is essentially working on two research areas together: (1) the research and/or demonstration of CO₂ capture from real gases, and (2) the recovery of CO₂ to methane in different processes. The project will thus for the first time investigate the interaction of different technologies to form a closed sustainable carbon cycle, including the storage functions necessary for the energy system of the future. The investigations are complemented by techno-economic, ecological and legal analyses.
