Basket of Energies: Transition Needs Diversified Carbon Capture Solutions

TL Hart Energy Web Banner

As the industry tackles the paradox of moving the world’s energy to a renewable future, without also destabilising the energy supply we all rely on, carbon capture is a key enabler for a responsible transition.

In this article by Hart Energy, Tom Ayers, our VP of Engineering and Consulting and Rob Duguid, Field Development and Energy Transition Manager, explain why an all-or-nothing approach to energy transition isn’t feasible and share insights on the role that decarbonisation is playing in this journey.

“It’s impossible to just turn off hydrocarbons; the world needs the energy,” Ron Duguid, field development and energy transition manager for Kent, told Hart.
“Everything that you touch has some sort of hydrocarbon attached to it. So medications, makeup, plastic, everything has some component of hydrocarbon in it,” Ayers said. “If your clothes have anything other than cotton or a less common natural fibre in it, it’s likely a synthetic material derived from a hydrocarbon.”
During decarbonisation talks, Duguid said three mature technologies are brought up: absorption, adsorption and membrane separation—each requiring careful selection for specific projects.
