The WtE plant, located in Norway, supplies heating and process steam to a number of industrial customers. The groundbreaking carbon capture facility will enable the WtE operators to capture 10,000 tonnes of CO2 annually, making operations more sustainable and developing an additional income stream. The scope of work not only includes post-combustion CO2 capture, but also the treatment and liquefaction of the CO2 to food grade quality. The Cleanova filtration system will ensure that the sequestered carbon is free from contamination and moisture, and is of suitable quality for use in food applications.

Javaid Riaz, CEO of Cleanova, says: “This is a big boost for Cleanova and demonstrates our commitment to enabling clean environments through innovative filtration solutions. Our team are working in close partnership with the EPC contractor to ensure that we deliver exceptional filtration results, which will be repeatable on other WtE carbon capture projects.”

Cleanova, formed in October 2023, comprises four established filtration brands: Airpel, Dollinger, Plenty and Vokes.
