Europe’s Largest Carbon Capture Project to use FOUNDATION Technology

I was pleased to see that FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology will be used in Europe’s largest carbon capture project.  Emerson Process Management recently announced that Doosan Power Systems will be installing an Emerson Ovation system on a new carbon capture demonstration facility that “will be the largest in Europe, capturing 100 metric tons of carbon dioxide per day — the equivalent of what might be produced by five megawatts of coal-fired power generating capacity. ”  FOUNDATION technology will be used in conjunction with Rosemount high density temperature transmitters.  High density temperature measurement is one of the more promising recent applications of FOUNDATION Fieldbus and can provide impressive results for things like temperature profiling that can be used to diagnose the health and efficiency of key plant assets.
