3D-CAPS - commercialisation
Assuming that the 3D-CAPS project is technically a success, is the 3D-CAPS technology viable for commercialization? How? With whom? Under what circumstances? For what applications? Which applications first? We want to tap your creativity and seek your input in helping to define use-cases and to estimate their economics.

"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. "

Use Cases
Defining the top three use cases...
In your opinion: What are the top three (1, 2, 3) applications for this technology, and why (size of market, ease of implementation, market need, value generated, other)?
Your answer
For these Use Cases (1, 2, 3), what are the alternatives to the 3D-CAPS technology (today and in the future)?
Your answer
For these Use Cases (1, 2, 3), can you give an indication of the Total Addressable Market (also called Total Available Market, or TAM). TAM helps to prioritize business opportunities by serving as a quick metric of the underlying potential of the opportunity. If you have detailed information, pls let us know, if not, then a qualitative assessment is fine, and we will make an estimate ourselves.

Your answer
For these Use Cases (1, 2, 3), what are the most important user requirements re e.g. lifetime, productivity and activity, scaling, recyclability, change-out time, purity, cost (capex, opex, invt), weight, size of equipment, other, etc.
Your answer
Thinking out of the box: what are possible spin-off technologies and applications? (Beyond CCS, steam reforming (H2 production), and off-shore processing of CO2?)
Your answer
Is there anything else you would want to make sure that we do not forget to look at?

Your answer
Business Plan Development
What is your opinion of the technology's SWOT: please list at least one of each if one comes to mind (a strength, weakness, opportunity and threat)
Your answer
Follow-on project: TRL6 demonstration plant
In order to progress the 3D-CAPS technology, a plan for a technology demonstration in an industrially relevant environment will be defined. Based on the experiences of the experimental and calculative activities, a first preliminary basis of design for a TRL demonstration plant for carbon capture applications will be made. A list of potential test sites will be defined, taking into account all relevant aspects, like footprint of plant, demands for electricity, cooling water and other utilities, total weight etc.

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.

What are your thoughts regarding the follow-on project (if any)?
In the proposal a TRL6 demonstration plant is mentioned. What application, which partners, what location, etc do you think would be appropriate?
Your answer
Is your company interested in participating in the follow-on project? *
No commitments here of course...
Re gathering info...
The Questionnaire
Do you have any other comment or suggestion about this questionnaire?
Adding questions, improving how they are asked, omitting some, other companies to add to the Long List above? other? Do you believe that there are better ways to get the (initial) information that we are looking for? What are they? Other methods? Or, if not mentioned above, whom should we send this questionnaire to as well?
