CORT, ConsenCUS and CASPER: pilot testing facilities at Aalborg Portland

These pilot projects, running from October 2023 to March 2026 at Aalborg Portland, assist in evaluating technologies for full-scale implementation by the company to meet the target of 400,000 tons of CO2 per year.

The aim of CORT is to test innovative solvents and process equipment in order to optimize operational capture conditions. This will result in the identification of the best suited solution for emissions reduction with our specific fluegas. As a follow-up, the project CASPER involves liquefying CO2 and temporarily storing it in ISO containers, which will then be transported to a facility for testing CO2 injection into a 5km pipeline. The primary aim of this CCS value chain is to capture and transport 1 ton of CO2 per day while assessing the quality of CO2 and identifying suitable conditions for pipeline transport.


Finally, the pilot from ConsenCUS aims to test a CCU value chain utilizing a distinct technology. It involves CO2 capture through absorption in an alkaline solution, followed by electrochemical regeneration of the absorbent, culminating in the production of potassium formate. The primary objective of this pilot is to evaluate a technology with the potential to significantly decrease the overall energy consumption of the process, operating entirely on electricity.
