Air Liquide, Eni Partner on Decarbonization, CCS (Int'l. Report)
Air Liquide, Eni
Date: 2022-03-21
Paris-headquarteded industrial gases and gas technologies specialist Air Liquide is reporting an agreement with Rome-based Italian energy giant Eni to assess decarbonisation and carbon capture and storage (CCS) solutions in the Mediterranean region of Europe.

The two firms will collaborate to identify clusters of hard-to-abate industries in this geographic area and will define the best possible configuration to develop a large-scale CCS programs.

Air Liquide will develop competitive CO2 abatement solutions, leveraging on its ongoing CCS initiatives in Northern Europe and on its innovative proprietary Cryocap&trade technology which is able to capture up to 95 pct of CO2 emissions from industrial facilities. Eni will identify the most suitable permanent CO2 storage locations in the Mediterranean sea.

Air Liquide, BASF Planning Joint CCS Project (Int'l. Report)
Air Liquide, BASF
Date: 2021-11-24
Air Liquide and BASF report plans to jointly develop one of the world's largest cross-border carbon capture and storage (CCS) value chains to significantly reduce CO2 emissions at the industrial cluster in the Port of Antwerp, Belgium. The joint project, Kairos@C, is being funded by the European Commission Innovation Fund.

Air Liquide will use its patented Cryocap™ technology and, for drying CO2, BASF will apply its Sorbead® solution. The project is planned to be operational in 2025.

Besides combining CO2 capture, liquefaction, transportation and storage on a large-scale in the North Sea, the project will also be connected to shared CO2 transport and export infrastructures, including a CO2 liquefaction and export terminal, which will be built under the framework of Antwerp@C, a consortium that aims to halve CO2 emissions in the Port of Antwerp by 2030. Kairos@C is expected to avoid 14.2 million tonnes of CO2 over the first 10 years of operation and significantly contribute to the EU's goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050.Air Liquide and BASF are founding members of Antwerp@C.

Date: 2020-01-29
Air Liquide reports the renewal of its 2016 partnership with Piscataway, New Jersey-based cement and concrete technology specialist Solidia Technologies. Under their 2016 agreement, a team of Air Liquide and Solidia Technologies experts "industrialized" Solidia Concrete, which uses carbon dioxide (CO2) to cure concrete.

The combination of the consumption of CO2 during curing, and lowered carbon emissions achieved in the production of low-energy Solidia Cement that is used to bind the concrete, results in an up to 70 pct reduced carbon footprint compared to traditional concrete, according to the release.

Air Liquide is Solidia's preferred supplier of CO2 and the equipment used for its injection in the cement-concrete production process.(Source: Air Liquide, Chemical Engineering 28 Jan., 2020) Contact: Air Liquide, Corporate Communications, +33 (0)1 40 62 58 49, media@airliquide.com, www.airliquide.com; Solidia, 908-315-5901, www.solidiatech.com

Port of Antwerp Consortium to Develop CCUS Infrastructure (Int'l.)
Port of Antwerp
Date: 2019-12-20
In the Netherlands, a collaboration of eight players in the port sector -- Air Liquide, BASF, Borealis, INEOS, ExxonMobil, Fluxys, Port of Antwerp and Total -- are reporting an agreement to conduct a study of the economic and technical feasibility of developing carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) at the Port of Antwerp.

The consortium believes that both storing and using carbon can make a useful contribution to achieving the energy and climate objectives at Flemish, Belgian and European level and lead to reductions in CO2 emissions in the run-up to 2030. To that end, the Port of Antwerp and a number of other partners have submitted the necessary applications to the European Commission.

The Port of Antwerp in Flanders, Belgium, is a port in the heart of Europe accessible to capesize ships. It is Europe's second-largest seaport, after Rotterdam. Antwerp stands at the upper end of the tidal estuary of the Scheldt which is navigable by ships of more than 100,000 Gross Tons as far as 80 km inland. -- Wikipedia.

PORTHOS Announces Rotterdam CCS Agreement (Int'l. Report)
Air Liquide, Air Products, ExxonMobil , Shell
Date: 2019-12-04
In the Netherlands, the Port of Rotterdam CO2 Transport Hub and Offshore Storage Project (PORTHOS) is reporting a non-binding agreement with Air Liquide, Air Products, ExxonMobil and Shell to collectively work on preparations for the capture, transport and storage of carbon dioxide in Rotterdam for eventual storage in empty gas fields beneath the North Sea.

The carbon capture will take place at Air Liquide, Air Products, ExxonMobil and Shell refineries and hydrogen production facilities in Rotterdam. The transport and storage of the CO2 beneath the North Sea will be prepared by Porthos.

The Netherlands has clear climate objectives: the emission of greenhouse gases must be reduced by 49 pct by 2030 and by 95 pct by 2050 compared with 1990. One way to achieve the climate objectives is to capture CO2 for use or for storage underground (CCUS). The national coalition agreement and the national Climate Agreement underline the importance of CCUS for the energy transition.
