"The project 3D-CAPS targets a productivity increase of an order of magnitude in two sorbent-based technologies for CCS. This will lead to a substantial decrease in overall equipment size and costs. This will be achieved using the latest available techniques for materials production: additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D-printing. One bottle neck for traditional packed-bed solutions for sorbent-based CCS technologies is the trade-off between flow-rate through the reactor, pressure drop and kinetics of the adsorption process. The use of 3D-printing will allow bespoke material configuration solutions for sorbent-based CCS technologies [that are] not available with current production technologies [and] that allow the maximum interplay between these three competing and complementary elements.

In the demo-plant, special attention will be given to inherently safer design practices for industrial processes, risk identification and management techniques. Identification of key variables need to be targeted in the demonstration unit design to reduce commercial design risk.
From one of the potential test sites local conditions like precise location of the various unit operations, access points to feed gas and utilities, required groundwork etc will be addressed. As a conclusion a clear plan for total costs of the TRL6 demonstration plant will be presented. Potential financing models for this will be identified. This will include dialogues with a commercial investor, with the European Investment Bank, with regional and European funding agencies and contributions from the partners.
