Topsoe, a global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies, has been selected by Essar Oil UK, a leading integrated downstream energy company, to be a technology licensor for its carbon capture facility, based in Stanlow, North West England.
Topsoe will deliver its SNOX™ technology for the removal of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, dust and other contaminants from the flue gas emitted in the production process. Topsoe’s technology will be one of a number of integrated licensed solutions supporting Essar’s plant, and will contribute to reducing their CO2 footprint.
What is SNOX™?
With SNOX™ technology, refineries, power plants, carbon black manufacture can remove sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, particulates and other contaminants from flue gases. The sulfur is recovered in the form of commercial grade concentrated sulfuric acid. The SNOX™ process works without any consumption of water and limestone, and without generating any waste or ocean discharge.
