Essar Oil UK has selected Topsoe as a second key licensor technology provider for the planned EET Industrial Carbon Capture (“ICC”) facility based at Stanlow, UK.

This is a pivotal step towards Essar’s $1.2 billion (€1.1 billion) investment in decarbonising the Stanlow refinery, by reducing around 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions, making it the world’s first low-carbon refinery and a producer of low carbon fuels.

Topsoe will provide its sustainable flue-gas treatment technology SNOXTM.

Deepak Maheshwari, CEO of Essar Oil UK, says: “We are ready to move into the next phase of Essar Oil UK’s decarbonisation strategy. The industrial carbon capture facility, combined with our upcoming hydrogen fuel switching project, will reduce the refinery’s CO2 emissions by 95%. Topsoe is a valuable partner in this endeavour. With Topsoe’s SNOM technology we are getting a well proven and highly sustainable flue-gas treatment.’
