American renewable, environmental and thermal energy company, Babcock & Wilcox has announced that its B&W Environmental segment has been awarded a contract by American multinational energy company, Phillips 66. This contract is to design a flue gas pre-treatment technology upstream from a planned carbon dioxide (CO2) capture system on the Phillips 66 Humber refinery’s fluid catalytic cracker (FCC) in North Lincolnshire, United Kingdom.

Joe Buckler, B&W senior vice president, Clean Energy says: ‘B&W has many decades of experience working with customers in the oil, gas and refining industries, providing technologies to make processes cleaner and more efficient. As the global leader in pre-treatment technologies for post-combustion carbon capture, the opportunity to work with Phillips 66 aligns well with our experience and expertise.’

‘We are pleased to be working with B&W, leveraging their expertise and knowledge. The pre-treatment is vital to the process to enable the planned carbon capture technology to work optimally. Our proposed project would be a first of a kind for an FCC. The knowledge learnt could help to support over 300 FCCs across the world to reduce carbon emissions and support industry to decarbonise,’ adds Adam Young, project lead at the Phillips 66 Humber refinery.

Phillips 66 Humber refinery carbon capture facility plans are part of the Humber Zero project, a world-scale carbon reduction project to support the decarbonisation of critical UK industry. The project aims to capture up to 8 million tonnes of CO2 by 2030.
