The paper describes experimental results obtained with CO2 capture from a coal fired power plant in Wilhelmshaven. After giving some basic information on the power and the pilot-scale carbon capture unit, findings on stress corrosion cracking in the Reclaimer, impact of SO3 on solvent emission and energy efficiency, which can be improved by applying lean vapour recompression. The paper highlight the learnings achieved when moving from lab scale testing to pilot scale testing.
