NextChem awarded engineering works by ENI

Maire Tecnimont S.p.A. has announced that its subsidiary NextChem has been awarded by ENI the engineering works for a carbon capture plant at the natural gas plant of Casalborsetti, in the province of Ravenna, Italy.

The project could extend into a full engineering procurement and construction (EPC) should certain conditions take place. The plant would be able to separate the CO2 from emissions from the natural gas plant’s turbocompressor, purifying and compressing them, thus allowing the capture of about 25 000 tpy of carbon dioxide which would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.

The technology used for the capture of CO2 operates at high efficiency and low power consumption even at low concentrations. It has already been widely used to capture emissions of hard-to-abate industrial sectors worldwide.

NextChem has developed a range of solutions that recycle CO2 to produce new chemicals, in view of an increasingly circular economy based on industrial symbiosis.

Pierroberto Folgiero, CEO of Maire Tecnimont and NextChem commented: "The capture of CO2, its value enhancement, and its reuse are a fundamental component in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, towards the achievement of climate goals aimed at containing global warming. In order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, the contribution of technologies for the capture, valorisation and sequestration of CO2 will be crucial. We are strongly committed to this technological segment of the energy transition, and this project demonstrates that we are on the right track as we move towards achieving our goals in our Green Energy business. We are proud to have been chosen for this project, which represents a milestone at international level that will enhance the Italian industrial supply chain".
