Shell Catalysts & Technologies has been selected as the provider of carbon dioxide capture technology for the VPI Immingham combined heat and power plant at the Humber Zero project in the UK.

Shell will work with its partner Technip Energies to design a unit that will capture 95% of CO2 from the flue gas stream, using Shell’s Cansolv CO2 capture technology, which is employed by SaskPower in its Boundary Dam plant in Canada.

Shell is also involved in a green jet fuel project that is being planned as part of the Zero Carbon Humber Partnership.  Humber Zero and Zero Carbon Humber Partnership are two of the nine industrial decarbonisation clusters awarded £171m in the UK, as reported in a previous IFRF blog.
