Technip Energies Selected By Viridor For UK Carbon Capture Project - Carbon Herald

Technip Energies has secured a contract from Viridor for the front-end engineering design (FEED) of the carbon capture and storage project at a major energy-from-waste plant in Runcorn, UK. 

This collaboration between Technip Energies and Viridor represents a significant step towards achieving carbon reduction goals in the UK, as the Rancorn project targets the capture of approximately 900,000 tons of CO2 annually, with half of it coming from biogenic sources. This process is expected to effectively eliminate 450,000 tons of CO2 from the air on a yearly basis.

The partnership will see Technip Energies provide a detailed design as part of the FEED study, incorporating the Canopy by T.EN™ solution supported by Shell CANSOLV CO2 capture technology. This solution is a key component of Technip Energies’ Capture.Now™, which is their strategic carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) platform that encompasses various technologies and solutions.

Viridor is a leading resource recovery and recycling company, with a particular emphasis on energy recovery and the recycling and processing of plastics.

They run the biggest fleet of energy-from-waste (EfW) facilities in the UK, along with the largest facility for reprocessing multiple types of polymers in the UK.

Their facility in Runcorn is in line to be among the initial recipients of funding from the UK Government’s Track 1 program for carbon capture projects. This would also make it one of the pioneering carbon capture projects in an energy-from-waste facility globally.

In a press release, James Eyton, Head of CCUS at Viridor, shared that the selection of Technip Energies was the result of a highly competitive tender process.

It was crucial for Viridor to find a partner who not only shared their vision for decarbonized waste treatment but also had the necessary experience and expertise to develop the world’s largest carbon capture project for energy from waste.

By combining their strengths and expertise, along with their mutual commitment to innovation and decarbonization, this collaboration between Viridor and Technip Energies is poised to make a lasting impact on the waste management industry.
