Carbon Clean has been awarded the carbon capture equipment supply contract for Ørsted’s FlagshipONE eMethanol project in Sweden.
Carbon Clean’s technology will capture 70,000 tonnes per year of CO2 from a biomass-fired combined heat and power plant in Örnsköldsvik.

FlagshipONE will combine the biogenic carbon dioxide with renewable hydrogen to produce 50,000 tonnes per year of eMethanol for use in the shipping industry.
Anders Nordstrøm, COO of Ørsted P2X, said: “FlagshipONE is a milestone project for Ørsted and for the decarbonisation of the maritime industry – and we’re very happy to be working with Carbon Clean, as we embark on the journey to transform global shipping.”
Aniruddha Sharma, chair and CEO of Carbon Clean, said: “The FlagshipONE project not only demonstrates the role carbon capture must play in decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors, such as shipping, but also that the technology is ready and there is absolute confidence in our ability to deliver at scale.
“We speak often about the storage of captured carbon, but this project is a perfect example of utilisation – the ‘U’ in CCUS – and we are thrilled to be working alongside Ørsted to deliver this project.”
The carbon capture plant will be modular and designed for ease of construction. Following off-site testing, modules will be transported and assembled on site in autumn 2024.
FlagshipONE, Ørsted’s first commercial-scale Power-to-X facility, is expected to be operational in 2025.
