Air Liquide Supports Decarbonization of Zeeland Refinery

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/2/2021, Location: Europe

Air Liquide Engineering & Construction has signed a contract with Zeeland Refinery, a joint venture between TotalEnergies and Lukoil, to provide a carbon capture and liquefaction solution in the Netherlands. Cryocap TM FG is a unique solution that enables to capture more than 90% of the emissions from the hydrogen production and will contribute to the decarbonisation of the Vlissingen site, by capturing more than 800,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

As part of the agreement, Air Liquide will provide the License, Process Design Package and technical services for a Cryocap TM FG (Flue Gas) plant that will capture more than 90% of the emissions on the two Vlissingen site’s existing hydrogen production units and will have the capacity to liquefy 2,400 tonnes of CO2 per day. As part of its decarbonisation project, Zeeland refinery will thus be able to reduce its CO2 emissions on the Vlissingen site by more than 800,000 tons per year. The pure and liquefied carbon dioxide will then be transported for storage in the Dutch North Sea.

Cryocap™ FG is a new unique solvent free technology solution developed by Air Liquide. It allows the capture and liquefaction of carbon dioxide contained in concentrated flue gases thanks to a combination of Adsorption and Cryogenics technologies. As it uses electricity rather than thermal energy, Cryocap TM products can run on renewable energy to further reduce the environmental footprint of the sites equipped with this technology.

Air Liquide Engineering & Construction brings to this project an industry leading experience in the development and operation of Carbon Dioxide Capture & Liquefaction units, with proven reference. Its Cryocap TM unit in Port-Jérôme, France, has been in successful operation for more than 5 years.

This contract is an illustration of Air Liquide's commitment to making a meaningful difference and to building a sustainable future through the abatement of CO2 emissions by providing its customers with environmentally-friendly technologies and applications.

David Maloney, Group Vice President and Chairman of Air Liquide Engineering & Construction stated: “At Air Liquide, we are committed to making a difference through the abatement of CO2 emissions for our own production facilities and for our customers. We are pleased to support the Zeeland Refinery project with our innovative carbon capture technologies that will contribute to decarbonisation of the site.”

Nathalie De Muynck, General Manager of Zeeland Refinery stated: “Zeeland Refinery is proud to be one of the first movers in industry to take a major step in the field of CO2 emission reduction by applying carbon capture and storage. By integrating the innovative Air Liquide technology into the existing refinery scheme, Zeeland Refinery will strengthen its position in the low carbon future that lies ahead of us.”
