According to the release, Ineos will construct hydrogen plants in Norway, Germany, and Belgium while furthering investments in the UK and France. The plant in Norway will be the first to go live and feature a 20MW electrolyzer. A larger 100MW electrolyzer will then be established at the German site. Ineos says it is also investing in the production of 'blue hydrogen' which can be safely captured and stored (CCS) underground.
As previously reported, in 2020 Ineos and Korean automaker Hyundai inked a Memorandum of Understanding to further the development of hydrogen technologies . (Source: Ineos, PR, 25 Oct., 2021)

The first unit to be built will be a 20MW electrolyser to produce clean hydrogen through the electrolysis of water, powered by zero-carbon electricity in Norway. This project will lead to a minimum reduction of an estimated 22,000 tpy of CO2. In Germany INEOS plans to build a larger scale 100MW electrolyser to produce green hydrogen at its Koln site, will result in a reduction of carbon emissions of over 120,000 tpy. It will also open opportunities to develop E-Fuels through Power-to-Methanol applications on an industrial scale.
INEOS, through its London-based subsidiary INOVYN, is Europe's largest existing operator of electrolysis for green hydrogen production and has extensive experience in the storage and handling of hydrogen, according to the release.

The companies plan to help address industrial CO2 emissions in one of the largest concentrated sources in the United States. Collectively, the 11 companies are considering using CCS technology at facilities that generate electricity and manufacture products that society uses every day, such as plastics, motor fuels and packaging.
If CCS technology is fully implemented at the Houston-area facilities these 11 companies operate, nearly 75 million metric tons of CO2 could be captured and stored per year by 2040. There are ongoing discussions with other companies that have industrial operations in the area to add even more CO2 capture capacity. They could announce their support at a later date and add further momentum toward the city of Houston's ambitions to be carbon neutral by 2050.
Wide-scale deployment of CCS in the Houston area will require the collective support of industry, communities and government. If appropriate policies and regulations are put in place, CCS could generate tens of thousands of new jobs, protect current jobs and reduce emissions at a lower cost to society than many other widely available technologies. The 11 companies will continue to advocate for policies that enable the long-term commercial viability of new, expanded and existing CCS investments in Texas.

Under project proposal, emissions will be captured at the Aalborg Portland cement production complex in northern Jutland and shipped to the Nini West reservoir which is
thought to hold storage potential of 0.5-1 MM metric tpy of CO2 by 2025, increasing to 4-8 MM metric tpy by 2030.
The area is considered geologically stable and has retained gas and oil for 10-20 million years, according to the release. (Source: INEOS Energy,Website PR, Offshore, Aug., 2021) Contact: INEOS Energy, www.ineos.com

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.

The sale includes INEOS' surplus land and equipment which will be offered first via a sealed bid auction process ending on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. If the equipment is not sold as an entirety with the real estate, the equipment will then be sold piecemeal via a timed online auction ending on January 15, 2019.
The 2011 vintage, $230 million INEOS plant was a joint venture between Ineos Group LTD and New Planet Energy LLC. This first of its kind demonstration plant was designed to use an integreated biomass gasification and gas fermentation technology to convert cellulosic yard and vegetable waste into ethanol.
The plant is adjacent to the Indian River County Solid Waste Disposal LandFill with an existing gas line in place enabling the use of the landfill waste gases on the site. The plant also owns an additional 74.5 acre tract of land to the south of the main site.
Frankens Energy purchased the property earlier this year and has begun deploying its plans to convert the site into an industrial eco-district, the first of its kind on the eastern seaboard. Once complete, the Indian River Eco-District will support and nurture an innovative eco-system of industrial businesses, while fostering sustainable competitive advantages, growth and success of each of its members.
