Air Liquide supports decarbonisation of Zeeland refinery

Air Liquide Engineering and 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 Flue Gas (FG) is a solution that can capture more than 90% of the emissions from hydrogen production and will contribute to the decarbonisation of the Vlissingen site by capturing more than 800,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Air Liquide will provide the license, process design package and technical services for a Cryocap FG plant at two of the site’s existing hydrogen production units and will have the capacity to liquefy 2,400 tonnes of CO2 per day.
The pure and liquefied CO2 will then be transported for storage in the Dutch North Sea.
Cryocap FG is a new unique solvent free technology solution developed by Air Liquide. It allows the capture and liquefaction of CO2 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.
David Maloney, group vice president and chairman of Air Liquide Engineering and Construction, said: “At Air Liquide, we are committed to making a difference through the abatement of CO2 emissions for our own production facilities and for our customers. We are pleased to support the Zeeland Refinery project with our innovative carbon capture technologies that will contribute to decarbonisation of the site.”
