Air Liquide Carbon Capture Unit Will Reduce Emissions By 33%

Dec. 20, 2023
Infrastructure will slash emissions by 2.5 million tons of CO₂ per year.

Air Liquide will construct and operate a large-scale carbon capture unit in Rotterdam, Netherlands, using its proprietary Cryocap technology. The unit, set to be operational in 2026, will be located at the hydrogen production plant in Rotterdam's port and connected to Porthos, a significant carbon capture and storage infrastructure. The Cryocap technology will capture CO₂ from the hydrogen plant using a cryogenic process. Captured CO₂ will be transported via the Porthos infrastructure and stored in depleted North Sea gas fields, reducing emissions by 2.5 million tons annually. The project aligns with Air Liquide's ADVANCE plan to cut CO₂ emissions by 33% by 2035, according to a Dec. 19 news release.
