    Project Tundra is a bold initiative aiming to build the world’s largest carbon capture facility in North Dakota. The project utilizes Fluor’s proprietary Econamine FG PlusSM (EFG+) technology to capture 4 million metric tons per year CO2 from the flue gases produced at the Milton R Young lignite-fired power generation station. Captured CO2 is compressed and dehydrated to meet pipeline specifications, and ultimately sequestered in a geologic storage reservoir.

    This presentation will provide an overview of Project Tundra along with the latest overall project status, while also highlighting some key recently developed EFG+ features implemented in the design. 

    Fluor has developed a new large-scale absorber column design capable of treating 2,400 MMSCFD of flue gas produced by the MRY power station in a single absorption train. The ability to treat such a large volume of flue gas in a single absorption train reduces the capital cost and footprint of the carbon capture facility. Fluor’s proprietary Solvent Maintenance System serves to maintain the quality of the circulating solvent in pristine condition, reducing the solvent degradation rate, and improving the overall environmental signature of the carbon capture unit. In addition, the presentation will provide a breakdown of the relative capital vs. operating costs over the lifecycle of the unit emphasizing the importance of addressing both to reduce the lifecycle cost of carbon capture.

    • Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage
    Carbon capture costs need to be reduced to enable the necessary broad adoption and avoid climate change. The CO2 Solutions by Saipem process combined with Novozymes large scale enzyme production takes a significant step in that direction. As capture costs, in general, are also greatly influenced by the scale and CO2 concentration in the industrial off-gas, Saipem and Novozymes now focus on accelerating the process scale-up within all industries that need low-cost and efficient carbon capture, namely in Cement, Oil & Gas, Iron & Steel and Coalfired, Biomass, Waste and Gas Power.

    • Carbon Capture, Utilisation & Storage

    Cement industry is considered one of the main drivers of climate change, responsible for around 8% of global CO2 emissions. Up to 70% of CO2 emissions in cement production are due to the calcination of limestone (CaCO3). Limestone is the main raw material in the cement production process, and it is separated into calcium oxide (CaO) and CO2 at high temperature.

    Some short term solutions on decarbonisation have been identified as levers that companies can pull without a step change in capex required, such as energy efficiency, alternative fuels and product innovation. However, these solutions are not sufficient to significantly reduce the industry’s current high carbon footprint. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is vital to decarbonize cement and lime manufacturing to help reach climate neutrality goals and lessen the negative environmental impacts caused by industrial emissions.

    Relying on its industry leading experience in cryogenic technologies, Air Liquide E&C has developed a complete range of CO2 capture technologies called Cryocap™. Cryocap™ is a proprietary technological innovation for CO2 capture that is unique in the world. This technology is proven to be environmentally sustainable because it only requires electricity to operate, which can be supplied by green energy. As it is a high efficiency power-driven technology, CryocapTM is more advantageous compared to solvent based solutions using steam.

    Our world is built upon carbon. Abundant, affordable and reliable energy has improved the world’s standard of living and  driven technology to new heights not envisioned just a generation ago. However, carbon is increasing in the atmosphere and impacting our climate which requires steps to innovate for a lower carbon future.  Alternative energy solutions, like hydrogen, and CCUS technologies must be developed and deployed at scale to lower our collective emissions impact. Hydrogen processes and CCUS work together to produce clean hydrogen.  Hydrogen can also be paired with Direct Air Capture (DAC) to produce a drop-in low carbon liquid diesel and jet fuel at scale in the near-term.  CCUS, DAC and clean hydrogen can work together to advance a circular carbon economy during the energy transition and play a role in achieving net-zero goals.

    In addition to being cost-efficient, the CCUS infrastructure  must be safe and accessible for maintenance. However, our judgement on hazards of new things can be best perceived when compared to existing experiences and currently, there is limited industrial experience in CCUS. For example, often the closet experience for dense phase CO2 transportation and storage is natural gas handling. Hazards, risks, and design practices for natural gas pipes serve as the compass in CCUS risk assessment. That is not sufficient. CO2 is a known asphyxiant and it can harm people and environment. It also forms acid solution in aqueous phase leading to corrosion issues and pipe cracks. In presence of small amounts of impurities typical to industrial CO2 streams and in the event of incidental formation of water in the pipeline, CO2 pipelines can experience very low PH levels and corrosion can start in matter of hours or days. Pipe cracks and thus depressurization in turn may lead to severely low temperatures. Steel exposed to low temperature can experience embrittlement.  The above risks of stress on infrastructure materials cannot be left unmitigated. Mitigation however is only possible through appropriate choice of materials at the design phase, removing impurities from CO2 where possible and close monitoring of the infrastructure through its entire lifecycle. The presentation discusses selecting materials for cost-efficient, safe and sustainable CO2 transport and storage infrastructure.
