Worley Claims DAC Carbon Capture Contract (Int'l. Report)
Worley, Carbon Engineering
Date: 2021-02-24
In the Land Down Under, North Sydney-based engineering firm Worley has been awarded a direct air carbon capture (DAC) front-end engineering design contract by 1PointFive -- a joint venture between Oxy Low Carbon Ventures and Rusheen Capital. The front-end engineering design services will be led by Worley's Houston office, with support from its Global Integrated Delivery team in India.

The facility will be the first commercial-scale development using Squamish, British Columbia-based Carbon Engineering Ltd DAC technology. Each DAC unit is expected to extract 1 million metric tpy of atmospheric CO2.

Upon completion of the design, the two companies will form an alliance and move into the engineering, procurement and construction phase, with two more phases to follow.

Worley Selected as Velocys Engineering Partner (Int'l, Ind. Report)
Velocys,Worley
Date: 2020-02-05
In the UK, Oxford-based sustainable fuels specialist Velocys plc is reporting the appointment of North Sydney, Australia-based Worley to manage the development of pre-feasibility, feasibility and FEED packages for all projects in the Velocys portfolio.

The Velocys technology package converts waste feedstocks into sustainable aviation and road transport fuels.

Velocys also notes it has now selected all the technology suppliers for its Bayou Fuels woody-biomass-to-fuels project in Natchez, Mississippi, USA. The same technology package will be used for the Altalto Immingham waste-to-fuels project in the U.K. (Source: Velocys, PR, Chem Eng., 4 Feb., 2020) Contact: Velocys, Henrik Wareborn, CEO, +44 1235 838 621, (713) 275-5840 -- Houston Office, info@velocys.com, www.velocys.com; Worley, Paul Seaton, Pres., www.worley.com

UK CAER Expanding Carbon Capture R&D (Ind. Report)
University of Kentucky
Date: 2018-05-02
In Lexington, the University of Kentucky Center for Applied Energy Research (CAER) reports it will receive over $940,000 from the US DOE's Office of Fossil Energy and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) to advance its carbon dioxide capture R&D. The Phase 1 funding is for a three-phase project as part of the U.S. DOE Fossil Fuel Large-Scale Pilot program. The new funding will allow UK CAER to advance its research by nearly 10 times and bring the technology closer to commercialization.

UK CAER's current 0.7 mw small pilot CO2 capture facility that operates at Kentucky Utilities' E.W. Brown Generating Station in Burgin, Kentucky, has led to scientific and engineering breakthroughs in the field, according to the CAER. The post-combustion system features modular equipment and free-standing columns with built-in advanced controls to continually minimize the CO2 capture energy penalty while responding to a dynamic external demand. The new system will combine several facets to simultaneously address capital cost, energy consumption, load change and environmental impact.

Project collaborators include LG&E and Kentucky Utilities, Carbon Clean Solutions, University of Texas at Austin, Membrane Technology Research, Electric Power Research Institute, Huaneng Clean Energy Research Institute, Koch Modular Process Systems, Worley Parsons and Smith Management Group.
