Technip Energies/Svante partner on carbon capture projects in Europe and Middle-East
Technip Energies and Svante have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further develop Svante’s solid sorbent carbon capture technology and provide integrated solutions from concept to project delivery.
The partnership will explore opportunities in Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA) and Russian Federation markets where Svante’s technology would be selected by end clients for industrial carbon capture projects, including cement & limestone, blue hydrogen, refineries, petrochemicals, steel, ammonia and pulp & paper facilities. The cooperation will be worldwide for blue hydrogen plants using Technip Energies’ Steam Methane Reformer (SMR) technology.
The carbon-capture facilities will use Svante’s solid sorbent technology to capture carbon directly from industrial post-combustion flue gases as a non-intrusive “end-of-the-pipe’’ solution to produce pipeline-grade carbon dioxide. Svante innovative net-zero technology captures carbon dioxide, concentrates it, and releases it for safe storage or industrial use, all in less than 60 seconds, by using proprietary active capture nano-materials called “solid sorbent filter’’.
Through this collaboration, both companies intend to address the critical need of lowering the capital cost of the capture of the carbon dioxide emitted from industrial production in order to achieve the world’s net-zero carbon goals required to stabilize the climate. Leaders from industry, financial sectors and government agree on the enormity of the challenge and the critical need to deploy more than 2,000 carbon capture and carbon removal plants by 2040. This is equivalent to put in operations about 2 plants a week over the next 20 years.
Arnaud Pieton, CEO of Technip Energies, said: “We are glad to collaborate with Svante on their emergent carbon capture technology for the decarbonization of hard-to-abate industries by leveraging our expertise in technology co-development and integration as well as design, procurement and construction of carbon capture plants. This partnership clearly reflects the significant role of industrial-scale technologies to accelerate the transition towards a low-carbon society.’’
Claude Letourneau, President and CEO of Svante, said: “This partnership with Technip Energies will allow us to focus our development effort in building a scalable supply chain for active capture materials to address a broad carbon capture and removal solutions offering at Gigaton scale. Svante is currently expanding its commercial filter manufacturing facility in Canada. By the end of 2023, the new facility will have an annual capacity to delivery filter modules capable of removing 3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year or the equivalent of project delivery of 3 world-scale carbon capture plants of 1 million tonnes per year’’.
