SLB PARTNERS WITH TDA RESEARCH TO SCALE UP EMERGENT SORBENT TECHNOLOGIES
SLB and TDA Research Inc., a leading research firm, announced today an exclusive agreement to co-develop and scale up TDA’s emerging sorbent technologies for industrial carbon capture applications across the power, cement, steel and petrochemical sectors.
Carbon capture generally represents 50–70% of the total spend of a carbon capture utilization and sequestration (CCUS) project. TDA’s emerging sorbent technologies have the potential to significantly lower carbon capture capital and operating costs by reducing equipment size and footprint, simplifying associated process equipment, and lowering energy requirements.
SLB will combine its research and development (R&D) and global technology industrialization capabilities with TDA’s R&D expertise to accelerate commercial development of TDA’s sorbent technologies.
TDA’s emerging sorbent technologies address a broad range of industrial CO2 emissions, from low- and high-concentration point sources to direct air capture. The portfolio of TDA’s sorbents will target a variety of use cases.
TDA Research headquartered in Colorado, is an R&D company that develops advanced materials (e.g., catalysts, sorbents), chemical processes and devices for energy, health care, aerospace and military applications.
