Shell andTechnip Energies test jointly developed Cansolv CO2 capture technology at pilot plant

October 19/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Technip Energies and Shell Catalysts & Technologies announce that their jointly developed improvements on the Cansolv CO2 Capture technology are being tested in a pilot plant campaign at Fortum Oslo Varmes Waste to Energy plant, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

In response to the increased global interest in Carbon Capture & Storage, the technologists and engineers of Shell Catalysts & Technologies and Technip Energies are working closely to bring continuous improvements to the Cansolv CO2 capture systems process design, efficiency and costs. These efforts are to ensure improved affordability and aid wide scale deployment of carbon capture solutions by their Clients.

The 3-month test campaign has been kicked off in August 2021 and will entail different test phases that will support the extension of the related improvements.

This is the second test campaign conducted by this collaboration. In the first campaign, the low volatility and amine emissions of the DC-103 solvent used in the process was demonstrated as well as its low absorption energy and solvent degradation.

Nick Flinn, General Manager Decarbonisation of Shell Catalysts & Technologies, commented: Although we have been designing and operating capture facilities for many years, we continue to strive to lower the cost through continuous improvement and development. This can only be achieved through close partnerships with the owner, the engineering company and the technology provider. This collaboration with Fortum Oslo Varme and Technip Energies is a nice example of 3 companies working in lockstep to achieve a common goal: decarbonising in a cost-effective manner.

Technip Energies and Shell Catalysts & Technologies are engaged in an alliance for the development and application of Shells high efficiency and commercially proven Cansolv CO2 capture system.

As MRC wrote before, Shell and BASF are collaborating to accelerate the transition to a world of net-zero emissions. To this end, both companies worked together to evaluate, de-risk, and deploy BASFs Sorbead Adsorption Technology for pre- and post-combustion Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) applications. The Sorbead Adsorption Technology is used to dehydrate CO2 gas after it has been captured by Shells carbon capture technologies such as ADIP Ultra or CANSOLV.

We remind that Royal Dutch Shell plans to reduce its refining and chemicals portfolio by more than half, it said in July 2020 without giving a precise timeframe. The move is part of the Anglo-Dutch company's plan to shrink its oil and gas business and expand its renewables and power division to reduce greenhouse gas emissions sharply by 2050.

Ethylene and propylene are the main feedstocks for the production of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP), respectively.

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's estimated PE consumption totalled 1,396,960 tonnes in January-July 2021, up by 7% year on year. Shipments of all grades of ethylene polymers increased. At the same time, PP shipments to the Russian market were 841,990 tonnes in the first seven months of 2021, up by 29% year on year. Supply of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) and block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymers) increased, whereas supply of statistical copolymers of propylene (PP random copolymers) subsided.

Royal Dutch Shell plc is an Anglo-Dutch multinational oil and gas company headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands and with its registered office in London, United Kingdom. It is the biggest company in the world in terms of revenue and one of the six oil and gas "supermajors". Shell is vertically integrated and is active in every area of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading.
