Air Liquide supports decarbonization of Zeeland Refinery

Jun 14 2021


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™ 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™ 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 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™ products can run on renewable energy to further reduce the environmental footprint of the sites equipped with this technology.
