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.

OGTC Announces Net-Zero Solution Center (Int'l. Report)
Oil & Gas Technology Center
Date: 2019-09-04
In the UK, the Aberdeen-based Oil & Gas Technology Center (OGTC) , in partnership with industry, reports it will create a new Net-Zero Solution Center to accelerate the development and deployment of technologies to de-carbonize offshore operations and develop the UKCS as the first net-zero oil and gas basin globally, supporting the industry's Roadmap 2035.

The Center will focus on developing technologies to reduce operational carbon emissions, working with other parts of the energy sector to create integrated solutions and re-purposing infrastructure to accelerate carbon capture usage and storage, hydrogen production and gas-to-wire capacity.

BP, Shell, Wood, Chrysaor, Aker Solutions, INEOS, CNOOC International, Total, Siemens and Equinor are among the project's backers. (Source: Offshore Engineering, OGUK, PR, 3 Sept., 2019) Contact: Oil & Gas Technology Center, Colette Cohen, CEO, +44 1224 063200, www.theogtc.com

Wheat Straw Isobutene Demo Scale Success Reported (Ind. Report)
Global Bioenergies ,Clariant
Date: 2019-02-08
Evry, France-based Global Bioenergies is reporting the successful production of cellulosic isobutene using wheat straw hydrolysate provided by its partner Clariant at its Leuna Demo Plant. The initial demo plants runs were part of OPTISOCHEM (OPTimized conversion of residual wheat straw to bio-ISObutene for bio based CHEMicals), a 2017 project with €9.8 million in grant funding from the Bio Based Industry- Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) as part of the H2020 program.

The project aimed to demonstrate a new value chain combining Global Bioenergies bio-Isobutene process with technologies developed by Clariant and INEOS, two of Europe's leading chemical companies. OPTISOCHEM focuses on:

  • Conversion of straw into glucose- and xylose-rich hydrolysates by Clariant sunliquid technology:

  • Fermentation of the straw hydrolysates into bio-isobutene by Global Bioenergies;

  • Conversion of bio-isobutene into oligomers and polymers by INEOS;

  • Preliminary engineering of an hydrolysate-to-isobutene plant and overall integration with a straw-to-hydrolysate plant, by TechnipFMC and IPSB, (France), and

  • Assessment of the sustainability and environmental benefits by the Energy Institute at the JKU Linz (Austria).

    The BBI-JU, a public-private partnership between the EU and the Bio-Industries Consortium (BIC), is dedicated to realizing the European bio-economy potential, turning biological residues and wastes into greener everyday products through innovative technologies and bio-refineries expected to become the heart of the bio-economy.

  • Former INEOS Cellulosic Ethanol Assets Up for Grabs (Ind. Report)
    INEOS Bio Energy
    Date: 2018-12-10
    Following up on our 23rd February coverage, industrial auctioneer Maas Companies of Rochester, Minnesota, reports the former INEOS Bio Energy 8 MMGY Cellulosic Ethanol Plant and 6 MW Biomass Plant in Vero Beach, Florida will soon fall under the auctioneer's hammer.

    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.

    Former INEOS Bio-Refinery Site becoming "Eco-District" (Ind. Report)
    Frankens Energy,INEOS
    Date: 2018-02-23
    In the Sunshine State, a consortium of investors and project developers led by Frankens Energy reports it plans to convert its recently acquired former INEOS New Planet BioEnergy LLC plant in Vero Beach, Indian River County, into one of Florida's largest integrated "eco-districts." The aim is to integrate a series of businesses, all focused on nurturing and supporting environmental sustainability, employment and education within the local community.

    The Indian River Eco-District is being developed at an enviable location, in that over $200 million of infrastructure capital was recently deployed at the site to build an industrial biofuels production plant, including on-site power generation equipment and a physical interconnection to Florida's electricity grid.

    Frankens Energy is an investor, owner and manager of a portfolio of renewable power generation assets, including the associated land and real estate, across the states of Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Florida.(Source: Frankens Energy, PR, 21 Feb., 2018) Contact: Frankens Energy, David Frankens, info@frankensenergy.com, www.frankensenergy.com
