Haldor Topsoe and Russian chemical company Shchekinoazot have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) over plans to develop blue and green methanol, ammonia, and hydrogen production and reducing CO2 emissions.
Parties have agreed to inform each other on latest technological developments and jointly explore opportunities of implementing Topsoe’s technologies at Shchekinoazot’s plants to efficiently and safely produce high quality chemicals.
“Our company’s vision is to be recognised as the global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024, and we are excited to share our groundbreaking technologies with our long-term partner Shchekinoazot,” sayid Roeland Baan, CEO and president of Haldor Topsoe.
Topsoe is already engaged in several projects to produce green hydrogen, green ammonia, emethanol, and efuels. An example is the Helios project in Saudi Arabia, which includes the world’s largest ammonia loop (1.2 million tons per year) to be delivered.
“We believe that with Haldor Topsoe’s support we’ll be able to lead the green transformation and be one of the frontrunners who will blaze the trail for the Russian chemical industry. Saving the natural resources is an extremely important issue for all countries,” added Boris Sokol, President of Shchekinoazot.
Shchekinoazot and Topsoe have worked together for the last 15 years and have successfully implemented five projects together related to ammonia, methanol and hydrogen production.
